Of course not. What is has is money -- lots of money from tuition payments funded by loans funded by the federal government, plus lots more money from grants funded by the federal government to support "law enforcement". If Ohio University doesn't apply for the grant to get its Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicle, some other university might get it instead!
(The joke is on the university there -- everyone who applies gets one!)
This is nothing more than a tank-size comparison between police departments. It's unnecessary, it contributes to an unhealthy atmosphere of militarization in our police forces, and I'd really rather my tax dollars not go towards this sort of thing.
