  • Description

    Quebec City's Police Force has been strengthened by the acquisition of four trucks-fully equipped to handle anything from minor riots to armed robberies.

    The trucks were ordered last April and arrived a few days ago. The police chief - Roger Lemire - says each vehicle is capable of transporting a sizeable squad of policemen-- ready to cope with any emergency. The trucks carry machine guns, tear gas bombs and stretchers. Police technicians have been busy this week equipping them with two-way radio communication systems. Officials say the trucks will be ready for use, if necessary, on the occasion of the Queen's visit next month.
