The National Defense Authorization Act authorizes the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess Department of Defense (DOD) personal property to federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies with special emphasis given to counter-drug and counter-terrorism initiatives.
For the purpose of this program, LEA's are defined as Government 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.
If your LEA qualifies and chooses to participate, your organization will become one of over 17,646 (local, state, and federal), which have taken advantage of this unique program.
Available items include weapons, vehicles, protective clothing, night vision equipment, aircraft, and much more. A shipping and handling fee is charged by DOD for weapons. M14's, M16's, and .45 caliber handguns are currently available through the 1033 program.
