In 1996, under the National Defense Authorization Act, President Clinton signed into law the expanded 1033 Program, which gave surplus military equipment to police deparments across the United States.

After 24 years having this military equipment has contributed to more police violence against American citizens.

This 1033 program has been referred to as "the militarization of police." Increasingly, citizens are calling for an end to this program and demilitarization of police departments.
