Vermont Capitol Police utilize LEOLITE Transport to protect Statehouse


Monday November 7, 2022

Orleans, VT – KIMTEK Corporation is proud to announce that our LEOLITE Transport for law enforcement UTV’s will be utilized as a support system for the Vermont Capitol Police in Montpelier, Vermont. The patent pending LEOLITE™ Transport skid unit allows the department to configure the unit in the field to respond to multiple emergency scenarios. With the special quick lock feature, the LEOLITE can transport officers, K9 partners, and a patient on a long board or stokes basket or extra storage boxes. All this can be done by releasing and locking each of the aforementioned optional carrying devices.

The LEOLITE Transport standard base comes with a lock box at the front of the slip on unit allowing for secure and locked storage for weapons, ammunition and supplies. An area on top of the lock box allows for extra storage of medical equipment and supplies. In combination with most large UTV’s now for purchase in the market, the LEOLITE can be very useful getting police officers where they need to go quickly and safely including responding to riot situations, off road deep terrain rescues (SAR) and prison system patrols. The Border Patrol, United States Military, Law Enforcement Agencies and K9 Officers all utilize the LEOLITE to help with their daily mission objectives.

In an article written by Vermont local WCAX, “The Vermont Capitol Police have rolled out a new utility terrain vehicle and other special equipment to protect the Statehouse.

The UTV and storage trailers for fencing barricades were paid for by a $70,000 grant from the Department of Homeland Security. The equipment is intended for public places without intense security measures like the Capitol complex.

Capitol Police Chief Matthew Romei says the new UTV will give them the flexibility to work with and provide aid to other law enforcement. “{To} raise and lower that posture when we need to in an intelligence-based fashion. We want to keep it open and welcoming as possible but we also need to keep in mind there are people out there that wish to do us harm,” he said.

While the Statehouse grounds never saw the barricades and fencing that went up after the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, heavily armed state troopers and other law enforcement were on high alert in Montpelier and other state capitols in the subsequent days.”
