State and Local Law Enforcement Equipment Procurement Program (The 1122 Program)

1122 Program Manager
Ms. Geneva Levesque

Phone: (804) 543-0240

Authority/Participation Benefits

Authorized under the 2009 National Defense Authorization Act, effective 10-22-2008, the language of Title 10, Section 381, of the United States Code (USC) was amended to allow:

“States and units of local government to purchase equipment suitable for counter-drug, homeland security, and emergency response activities through the Department of Defense.”

The State and Local Law Enforcement Equipment Procurement Program affords state and local agencies the opportunity to take advantage of discounts available to the federal government due to its large volume purchases.

This system has several advantages for local law enforcement agencies, Homeland Security and Emergency Response Units:

On July 1, 2011, the National Defense Authorization Act (Section 1122) established the requirement for the Department of Defense to develop procedures that would enable state and local governments, Homeland Security and Emergency Response units to purchase law enforcement equipment through the federal procurement channels. The Department of Defense designated the Department of the Army (DA) as the executive agent. The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Department of Justice (DOJ) and General Services Administration (GSA) are active participants in the administration of the program.
