Welcome to the Law Enforcement

1033 Excess Property Program Home Page!



Initially begun as a program to assist with counterdrug and counterterrorism activities, the Excess Property Program has since expanded to include all general law enforcement activities as well as some prison functions such as riot control and tracking escaped prisoners.


Excess Property is transferred to eligible law enforcement agencies from the Department of Defense at no charge.  Participants do incur a minimal service charge to cover the costs of administering the program.




Federal law limits eligible participants to law enforcement activities only, whose primary function is the enforcement of applicable Federal, State, and Local law; and whose compensated law enforcement officers have the powers of arrest and apprehension.   Some qualifying organizations are:


Police Departments

Drug Task Forces

County Agencies

Correctional Facilities

“Special Rescue Team”

(to quell prison disturbances or to apprehend escapees)

Some Authorities

Some Campus Police Departments


If you feel that your organization could qualify for the Excess Property Program, please feel free please complete the eligibility application at the link below.
