Minnesota's share of the Defense Department's surplus military equipment program

See also

The 1033 program is the initiative which has allowed the Defense Department to transfer billions of dollars worth of excess and unneeded military equipment to local law enforcement agencies since the program began in 1997.

The program is run by the Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO), located at Defense Logistics Agency's (DLA) Disposition Services Headquarters in Battle Creek, Michigan.

I just received some information I had requested from the Defense Department about the program and the type of equipment that has been received by law enforcement agencies in Minnesota.

This list covers items distributed to Minnesota between September 2011 and September 2013. It appears to be part of the same list that has been released under previous FOIA requests filed by other reporters.

These records only show the totals on the state level. I had also requested a list of which items were sent to the individual law enforcement agencies, but I have not yet received those. I also have not have received any figures from the past year, a period in which the rate of distribution appears to have rapidly escalated. The list also doesn't include most of the Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles that have been sent to Minnesota, since nearly all of them have been shipped to the state after the September 2013 cut-off date provided in this document.

It's also important to note that this list doesn't include other government programs that help law enforcement agencies obtain equipment, including the federal block grants, which have totaled billions of dollars over the past decade.

I received the information in a spreadsheet, but unfortunately there isn't a way to embed or share it through the Examiner web site. So here is the info just copied-and-pasted into the page.

It's a bit difficult to read, but each line includes the item name, national stock number, quantity, total cost and ship date.
