1033 Federal Excess Property Program

The National Defense Authorization Act authorizes the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess Department of Defense property to state and local law enforcement agencies whose primary function is the enforcement of applicable Federal, State and local laws and whose compensated law enforcement officers have the powers of arrest and apprehension. Special emphasis is given to counter-drug and counter terrorism divisions.

The Program provides all types of excess equipment to participating agencies free of charge except for costs related to the transport or pick up of property. Such equipment available includes vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, weapons, computer equipment, body armor, night vision equipment, radios and more.
