Participating in the 1033 Program

The Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO) is accepting applications to participate in the 1033 Program. To date, thousands of Federal, Tribal, State, and Local Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have participated.

As an active member, the LEAs receive a Department of Defense Activity Address Code (DODAAC), which allows LESO to track issued property.  Additionally, LEAs are granted access to web-based applications which will allow them to search for and request equipment. Requests for excess DOD property by State LEAs must be approved by the State Coordinator as well as the LESO.

Once property is received on record, the LEA must ensure its accountability and responsibility of it.  If the LEA desires to Transfer, Turn-In, or Dispose of the property, they must have LESO approval.

 

How to Participate in the 1033 Program

For all LEAs to qualify for entry into the 1033 program, LEAs must meet all three of these basic criteria:

  1. Is the agency’s primary function the enforcement of laws?
  2. Are the agency’s officers compensated?
  3. Do the agency’s officers have the powers of arrest and apprehension?

If all three prerequisites are met, LEAs will need to:

 

STATE LEAs

  1. Submit an Application for Participation.





    NOTE: Applications are a standardized form.  DLA Disposition Services LESO will only accept the form provided on this website. The form supplied is fillable. It is preferred that the LEA types the application rather than handwriting, to avoid errors. If you must handwrite the form, please use all capital letters and print neatly.  For complete instructions:  Application for Participation Instruction Sheet





    By forwarding the application to LESO, the State Coordinator asserts that the State LEA meets the definition and will abide by all terms of the DLA/State Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The LEA must submit the Application for Participation to the State Coordinator for their approval. Once the State Coordinator has signed the application, they will forward to LESO.  If LESO approves the application for participation, the State LEA will then become an active member.
  2. Once LESO validates the application and it is approved, they will generate an Authorization Letter for Property Screening, upon request, and issue the new agency a DODAAC.
