Participation in the Federal 1033 Program
SSPD is currently enrolled in the Federal 1033 Program, which allows local law enforcement agencies to receive excess Department of Defense (DoD) property that might otherwise not be utilized. Certain types of this equipment is categorized as “controlled” property, which includes items such as small arms/personal weapons, demilitarized vehicles and aircraft, and night-vision equipment. Controlled property always remains the property of and is accountable to the DoD. Some of the items SSPD may request could include ammunition, night vision, armored and tactical vehicles, command and control vehicles, riot protection gear (batons/helmets/shields), breaching apparatus, robots, and small arms.
Please note this notice does not ensure acquisition of stated property, as all property is on a first come basis with all participating LEAs in 49 states and four U.S. territories. When a law enforcement agency no longer wants the controlled property, it must be returned to the federal agency for proper disposition. SSPD welcomes and is required to seek the input of the community where controlled property could be used. For inquiries into the program please visit: CDPS 1033 Program
