The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department added a special new vehicle to its fleet Friday.

The newly retrofitted armored truck will be used by its Special Emergency Response Team.

The truck includes a wide range of high-tech equipment and weapons options, updated armor and bullet-proof windows.

The truck was retrofitted by employees of BAE Systems in Santa Clara, who volunteered more than 800 hours of their own time.
