Law Enforcement Support Organization (LESO) - 1033 Program
The U.S. Department of Defense (D0D) 1033 Program permits the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess DoD supplies
and equipment to state and local law enforcement agencies for use in their law enforcement duties. This property is
procured at no cost to the agency with the exception of any shipping or transportation costs.
The type of property available includes but is not limited to tactical and riot gear, vehicles, watercraft, weapons, and night vision .
All equipment must be strictly accounted for. When no longer needed agencies must request permission for turn in, transfer, or disposal.
Agencies must request participation in the program through the Governor appointed State Coordinator. The Coordinator will facilitate
the application process with the
Federal Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO).
