HSEM is the state administrator for the Minnesota Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO) program established by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) through the Defense Logistics Agency. It allows law enforcement agencies to obtain surplus military weapons, tactical vehicles, aircraft and other equipment for any bona fide law enforcement need at no cost.
All transferred surplus items must have a direct application to the law enforcement agency's arrest and apprehension mission.
In order to participate in this program, agencies must be officially enrolled. To apply, complete the following documents and email them to the MN-LESO State Point of Contact (SPOC) at: Jacob.Beauregard@state.mn.us.
