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.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
