U.S. Military Donates Surplus to Police

By KIMBERLY HEFLING Saturday, January 27, 2007



WASHINGTON - The military's trash is treasure for local police around the country. Cash-strapped law enforcement agencies are lining up to take advantage of the Pentagon's generosity: a tranquilizer gun to shoot bears in Pennsylvania, a van for crime scene investigations in Michigan and boats for water patrols in Virginia.

The Defense Department is giving the items away. About 16,000 local agencies obtained more than 380,000 pieces of equipment in the 2005 budget year, according to an analysis of data provided by the Pentagon at the request of The Associated Press.

The items, which include night-vision goggles, copy machines, bulletproof vests and even helicopters, were worth nearly 4 million.

Authorities in Bucks County, Pa., just outside Philadelphia, turned to the Pentagon for two hand-me-down armored vehicles to protect officers in hostage standoffs. Savings to local taxpayers: more than ,000 apiece.

The top recipients nationwide:

_California, million worth of equipment.

_Indiana, .5 million.

_North Carolina, million.

Detectives on a drug task force in Tippecanoe County, Ind., wear military fatigues for covert surveillance of methamphetamine cooks and cocaine dealers. In Pennsylvania, the state game commission uses a tranquilizer gun in its program to put tracking collars on bears. In Emmett Township's Department of Public Safety in Michigan, a blue 1986 Chevrolet van is part of the mobile unit to process evidence.

The program is administered by the Defense Logistics Agency. Police departments pay only to ship the equipment and for necessary upgrades. The military gives away only items it considers obsolete for its own use, parts that already have been replaced or are no longer needed in places such as Iraq.

"We've gotten unbelievable stuff," said police Sgt. Jim Forbes in Hampton, Va. "It's benefiting a whole lot of folks in this business."

Last year, Forbes' department obtained 55 patrol rifles and paid only a few hundred dollars for shipping. Over the years, his department has received boats and even a doublewide trailer it uses as a training room on a range.

Some states have soured on what they describe as bureaucratic hurdles imposed by the Pentagon since the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Wyoming closed its coordinator's office more than two years ago because it cost more money to operate than the value of the equipment it received, said Gayleen Wyant, the surplus property manager there.

"They're not making it easy for states to go and pick up their surplus," she said. "The paperwork and everything is enormous. It's just not flowing like it used to."

And not all the equipment is in mint condition.

In North Dakota, Divide County Sheriff Lauren Throntveit said he drove to Wyoming to pick up a vehicle that turned out to have problems, so he was only able to use the motor. But, he was able to use military surplus property to refurbish his office with new desks and chairs.

"They're nothing you'd put in your house, but they're in pretty fair shape," Throntveit said.

The 1960s-era armored vehicles given to Bucks County only needed paint and fresh batteries. The final cost was less than the ,000 each would cost new, said Scott Pepperman, chief of the state's Federal Surplus and Law Enforcement Property Division.

The armored vehicles are used in standoffs and hostage situations.

"If you're in your office and barricaded, and one of these things pulls up in your front lawn, it's very intimidating," said Lt. Michael Clark of the Northampton Township Police Department in Bucks County.

Elsewhere in Pennsylvania, the military gave away free parkas, riot helmets, boots, night vision goggles, a tractor, dump trucks and backhoes.

In Alabama, a sheriff's department near Birmingham received four 1970s-era helicopters. It cannibalized two for parts and already has a third in the air.

"We went to (the) bargain basement," Jefferson County Sheriff Mike Hale said.

New helicopters would have cost taxpayers 0,000 each, said Hale, who figures his department will have two air-worthy helicopters for only a fraction of that amount. He intends to use them to chase criminals and watch over the local airport and water plants.

"If your agency can afford it, it's probably the easiest thing to spend million and buy one," Hale said. Still, he added, "The product we put out is a first-class helicopter."

The Defense Department's giveaway program started in 1990 to transfer surplus military parts to police for anti-drug and anti-terrorism work. Its mission was later broadened.
