A recent audit reveals that a U.S. Department of Defense program that provides surplus military gear to local law enforcement agencies has sent more than ten-million dollars’ worth of weapons, helicopters and armored trucks to New Mexico. The audit by the Pentagon office responsible for the program shows that the equipment went to 32 agencies. One of them was the Santa Fe Police Department. KSFR's Randy Scott recently discussed the matter with Santa Fe Police Chief Eric Garcia and prepared this report.
