Defense Logistics Agency 1033 Program: Analysis of 2019-2020 Transfers to States for Law Enforcement Use

The National Police Foundation has received inquiries on the 1033 Program and how it is used by law enforcement. In responding to these requests, the Foundation accessed the 1033 Program data and analyzed transfers from June 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020. While some agencies and states continue to receive military equipment such as mine resistant vehicles, rifles and associated parts, the vast majority of equipment transferred during this period consists of clothing, personal protective equipment such as gloves and facemasks, and basic infrastructure needs such as wiring, tools, generators, etc. States and local communities save hundreds of thousands of dollars through the program. The Foundation encourages those considering policy changes to examine the data and respond in ways that don’t diminish the appropriate uses and value that states and local communities receive.
