How Strapped is Your Local Police Department?

Multiple drones, armored vehicles, over 200 AR-15 style rifles in various models, flash bang grenades and riot control grenades-these are just some of the weapons Anaheim police, a department routinely criticized for excessive force, have in their arsenal.

Anaheim Police’s public disclosure of the weaponry stems from a new state law requiring local police departments to create an inventory of what the state defines as military grade weaponry and a policy for their use.

Buena Park and Cypress also recently discussed their respective police department inventories.
