Law Enforcement Support Organization (LESO) - 1033 Program
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) 1033 Program permits the Secretary of Defense of the United States of America to transfer excess DoD supplies and equipment to state, county, and local law enforcement agencies across the country for use in performing their law enforcement duties. This property is procured at little to no cost to the law enforcement agency obtaining the equipment. Any property obtained can only be used by law enforcement officers for law enforcement purposes. Any other use of the equipment is strictly prohibited.
The type of property available includes but is not limited to desks, tables, chairs, first aid gear, high water rescue vehicles, passenger vehicles, gym equipment, laptops, watercraft, firearms, protective shields, binoculars, and optical sights. All equipment must be strictly accounted for and inventoried on an annual basis by the agency that has obtained the equipment. The equipment is also subject to be inspected by the New Jersey 1033 Program’s LESO as well as the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), which is the Federal Agency that manages the 1033 Program nationwide for the DoD.
To participate in the 1033 Program, law enforcement agencies must submit an application to participate to DLA through their state 1033 Program LESO. Any law enforcement agency in New Jersey that wants to participate in the 1033 Program must submit the application to the New Jersey 1033 Program LESO for vetting before it will be accepted by DLA.
