The Beeville Police Department says they are short equipment for their SWAT Team.
"Well, a lot of the times the SWAT members have purchased their own rifles," said Police Chief Joe Trevino. "Of course they are very expensive rifles and expensive scopes."
Chief Trevino is asking city council for about $30,000 for new helmets, belt straps, and other equipment. Chief Trevino adds the department could also use additional training for its SWAT officers.
