Sangamon County Agencies Benefit From Surplus Military Equipment


A Pentagon program to provide surplus military gear to local law enforcement agencies has had a big impact in Sangamon County. 

 

The New York Times reports that all local agencies combined have received more than 600 assault rifles, 54 pieces of night vision equipment, more than a dozen firearms and two armored vehicles since 2006. 

 

All surrounding counties have also received military equipment, mostly assault rifles.
