    Awesome find, I like Lenco Bearcat's a lot.

    If you actually look at the NNSA Protective Services website, they have like 5 of these things, usually a 7.62mm minigun mounted in the top, and they have a compliment of rifles, and GRENADE launchers.

    Are they actual Federal Law Enforcement Officers or are they Wackenhut?
  • James Duff 6y

    I dunno, I know there are contract security people there, but at the same time, having at one point worked a few weekends for Wackenhut about 11 years ago, I'd like to think they wouldn't be the ones manning the grenade launchers.

    From what I can remember from my Instructors, they are ex military soldiers(Army, Marines, Navy Seals, Rangers, Marine Force Recon, Delta, etc). Some are hired and trained as new agents with no prior experience. Don't hold me to that, I'm not 100% sure. But they also told us that when a DOE vehicle is in a wreck, that State or Local PD will ALWAYS get on scene before us, and that there are certain signs and countersigns that law enforcement has to remember. DOE agents will tell dispatch that "Fire" is the sign, and that "Ice" is the Counter. That's just an example, but you get the idea.

    The DOE tractor trailers will not go over a certain speed(either 55 or 65) and that the windows are made to absorb high caliber bullets, and that the armor on the truck itself is made to withstand high explosives. The driver of the truck is not allowed to leave the truck at any point. The average fire department extrication tool is not strong enough to bend the metal in the instance of an accident that requires extrication.
