Interactive: Explore the Military Equipment in Your Community 

Since the 1990s, Vermont police agencies have quietly obtained armored vehicles, assault rifles and other surplus military gear from the Pentagon. Read our story on the 1033 Program and explore the database of surplus military equipment in Vermont. Click on your county to see what your local departments have obtained for their arsenals.

To create this database, Seven Days obtained nearly 4,000 pages of records from the Vermont National Guard, the agency tasked with implementing the 1033 Program over the past 17 years. Information contained in the database was listed as either "approved" or "pending receipt" at the time that we received the data, meaning that agencies have either been approved and are awaiting equipment or have received the equipment.

  • What's New This Summer at 16 Burlington Waterfront Spots?

    It's hard to imagine that the curving Lake Champlain shoreline of Burlington Bay was once littered with oil tanks, industrial barges, timber and pollution-spewing smokestacks. A few remnants of the working harbor remain, but the stretch between Rock Point and Oakledge Park is increasingly a place for recreation, restaurants and pleasure boating. Some 30 years after the City of Burlington used the public trust doctrine to win a court battle and reclaim big chunks of the waterfront from the railroad, its transformation continues. Here's a look at pending and possible changes, large and small, along the 4.5-mile lakeside stretch. Changes include North Beach improvements, new bike path construction (and exercise stations), a brand new sailing center, more paid parking and marina construction.
