Controlled Equipment Standards
In order to assist jurisdictions with meeting the requirements for acquiring controlled equipment, the Permanent Working Group and the Bureau of Justice Assistance released a proposal to define and develop the General Policing Standards and the Specific Controlled Equipment Standards outlined in the report recommendations. Attached is a link to the product developed by an expert panel convened by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA), and the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Recipients of federal equipment programs are encouraged to review these principles to ensure that they are present their individual agency policies and training programs.  See the Standards here: https://www.bja.gov/programs/Controlled-Equipment-Standards.pdf
