As heavily armed police confront protesters, data shows Fla. agencies have stockpiled an arsenal of military equipment

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Scenes of protests against racism and police brutality in cities across the U.S. in recent weeks have resembled war zones as heavily armed law enforcement officers and federal agents confronted civilians on urban streets.

The violent images have renewed calls by some to end a federal program that gives local police agencies access to military equipment usually meant for battlefields.

In Florida, that program has put more than $100 million in Department of Defense equipment into the hands of police over the past 25 years, according to a South Florida Sun Sentinel analysis of federal data.

Fort Lauderdale police have a mine-resistant tank. Officers in Palm Beach County have access to five battle-ready tanks. University police at Florida International University in Miami have two.

Even Tequesta, a 2-square-mile coastal village of fewer than 6,000 people in northern Palm Beach County, got a 15-ton tank from the military.

Across the country, 8,200 police departments participate in the Defense Logistics Agency's 1033 Program, which transfers unused military equipment to police. Some of the surplus is harmless — such as socks, tripods and engine parts — but the majority is heavy equipment and artillery.

In June, the Southern Poverty Law Center urged Congress to end the 1033 Program, arguing that the militarization of police has contributed to the spread of anti-government extremism and heavily armed "militias."

But local police say the primary purpose of the equipment they receive from the surplus program is for emergency response.

A spokesman for the Tequesta police, Sgt. Emir Yildiz, said his department's tank, which arrived eight months ago at a cost of $3,500, has never been used. "It's a vehicle used for emergencies, as there are no mines in Tequesta."

Yildez said the department's tank, a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected light-armor vehicle, may look like it's only for war zones but can also plow through several feet of water — useful during hurricanes when rescuers must reach flooded areas.

But similar armored tanks have also been seen on city streets during times of unrest.
