BTPD Enrolled in Federal 1033 Program

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. Controlled property always remains the property of and is accountable to the Department of Defense. When a law enforcement agency no longer wants the property, it must be returned to the federal agency for proper disposition. Please be aware that this notice does not ensure the acquisition of items, as all property is on a first-come, first-served basis. The City of Bristol Tennessee welcomes input regarding the acquisition and use of controlled property. Please contact the BTPD at (423) 989-5600 for additional informtion.
