BOAZ, AL (WAFF) -

A Boaz school resource officer now has a new weapon in the fight against school bullying – a decked out new patrol vehicle.

Officer Thomas Underwood started the program Stand for the Silent, but his new wheels are anything but silent.

Underwood picked up his stylish new Chevy Tahoe Wednesday afternoon. Given to the department by the mayor, a local detail shop dressed up the vehicle's exterior.

A car audio shop dressed up the inside with a video monitor and a heavy-wattage sound system.

Underwood plans to take the vehicle to Boaz High School Thursday morning. He will be able to make mobile presentations about bullying and feels his new ride will be a hit with the students.

"We have a field day at Boaz Intermediate School on Friday and I'm planning on setting this up with our Hummer," he said. "We'll have the lights on and we'll have fun with it. We'll let the kids tour the vehicle, get in it, climb in it, play with it."

Officer Underwood said he plans to also show off the new vehicle to the school board when they meet Thursday evening.
