Berkeley Cancels Order for Armored Car

I recently wrote of a controversial armored car order that led many to ask about the need for militarization in Berkeley.

Officials have now formally announced a change in plans. The “armored emergency rescue vehicle” debate is over.

Campus administrators evaluated the proposal and concluded that such a military-style vehicle is not the best choice for a university setting. UC Berkeley officials are in the process of canceling the order for the vehicle. Officials in Berkeley and Albany agree with the University’s decision.
