“Just weeks into his presidency, several news agencies reported that Joe Biden was planning on reinstating Obama-era limits on a federal police militarization program. It never happened. Months later, local police continue to receive military surplus equipment under rules instituted by Donald Trump. Through federal grant programs such as the 1033 program, local police departments procure military-grade weapons. Police can also get military equipment through the Department of Homeland Security via the (DHS) ‘Homeland Security Grant Program.'” (09/02/21)
