New BPD equipment comes care of the Lions Club

Thanks to the Berlin Lions Club, local police now have a piece of equipment they had been lacking.

Recently, the Lions handed over a new off-road utility vehicle and a storage trailer for it to the Berlin PD. Fittingly, the presentation was made at the Berlin Lions fairgrounds, where the civic group hosts its largest fundraiser each fall.

"For many years the Berlin Police have had to borrow UTVs from surrounding departments. And now, thanks to the Lions Club, we now have our own," the Berlin PD stated on social media. "The Berlin Police appreciate all the Berlin Lions Club does to support, not only the police department, but the Berlin community."

The Berlin Lions said they were "proud" to donate the off-road utility vehicle and trailer to the Berlin PD. "This unit will enhance their capabilities and presence at the Berlin Fair and within the community in unique law enforcement situations," the Lions said in a social media post.

The UTV will be equipped with a light bar, a gift from retired Berlin police officer Bob Canto.
