I suppose it will come in handy during Lake Effect snow.

12 feet tall????!!!!! I guess the SWAT officers are all 9 foot tall then since the top of the vehicle appears to be approx. 2-3 feet above their heads. No ladder platform visible on top either. Another shining example of factual reporting by the "always" reliable media.
