Since the 1990s, Vermont police agencies have quietly obtained armored vehicles, assault rifles and other surplus military gear from the Pentagon. Read our story on the 1033 Program and explore the database of surplus military equipment in Vermont. Click on your county to see what your local departments have obtained for their arsenals.
To create this database, Seven Days obtained nearly 4,000 pages of records from the Vermont National Guard, the agency tasked with implementing the 1033 Program over the past 17 years. Information contained in the database was listed as either "approved" or "pending receipt" at the time that we received the data, meaning that agencies have either been approved and are awaiting equipment or have received the equipment.
