The Bristol Tennessee Police Department is currently enrolled in the Federal 1033 Program, which allows the transfer of excess Department of Defense property to law enforcement agencies across the United States and its territories. These items are procured at no cost to the City of Bristol Tennessee, except for any shipping or transportation costs. Certain types of this equipment is categorized as “controlled” property, which includes items such as small arms/personal weapons, demilitarized vehicles and aircraft, and night-vision equipment.
