Excess Property was formally created in 1991 to provide a coordinated means for state and local law enforcement agencies to obtain excess Department of Defense (DOD) equipment.
This division also is the state point of contact for the 1122 Procurement Program, which provides a means for state and local agencies to purchase equipment using Federal government contracts. This office is also a state coordinator for the Bulletproof Vest Partnership Program.

New Guidelines for DEMIL A and Q6 Property
- As of July 1, 2014, the DLA LESO has implemented policy and procedural changes which place additional controls on certain excess DOD property with Demilitarization codes of A and Q (with an Integrity Code of 6). These items will be subsequently referred to as, “National Security Exemption (NSE) restricted DEMIL A and Q6 items”.
- The DLA LESO will maintain a list of National Security Exemption (NSE) restricted DEMIL A and Q6 items, by National Stock Numbers (NSN), which will be treated as controlled property.
- All items falling into this category that were acquired with an MRO/Ship date after July 1, 2013, will be treated as controlled property, and will not be systematically archived from the DLA LESO inventory. Law Enforcement Agencies are not authorized to sell NSE restricted A and Q6 items.
- When an NSE restricted DEMIL A and Q6 item is no longer needed by a Law Enforcement Agency, the item must be turned back into a DLA Disposition Services location or transferred to another participating Law Enforcement Agency within the DLA LESO.
- For Annual Inventory purposes, Law Enforcement Agencies who obtain or have obtained NSE restricted DEMIL A and Q6 items after July 1, 2013, must now provide Serial numbers for these items. In addition, photographs of these items may also be required, if the item falls into a Federal Supply Group (FSG) of 10, 15, 19 or 23.
- Law Enforcement Agencies may request to sell items with a DEMIL Code of Q (with an Integrity Code of 6), which do not fall into the category of NSE restricted items, but must gain State Coordinator and DLA LESO approval, prior to the actual sale of such items. These items will not be systematically archived from the DLA LESO inventory.
- Only excess property with a DEMIL Code of A, which does not fall into the category of NSE restricted items, will continue to be systematically archived from the DLA LESO inventory one year from MRO/Ship date. Title for items in this category, will continue to pass to the LEA.
