Military Equipment Owned by SRPD

As part of California Assembly Bill 481, local law enforcement agencies are asked to be transparent in the types and uses of any purchased military-grade equipment for the purpose of public safety. As the City of Santa Rosa drafts its ordinance to comply with state law, SRPD will add any information about its military-grade equipment to this page. Please note that at this time, this portion is incomplete and is expected to be updated regularly.
