What is the 10-33 program

• 1033 Program Overview: The National defense Authorization Act authorizes the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess Department of Defense (DoD) personal property to Federal, state and local Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) with special emphasis given to counter drug and counter terrorism. The 1033 Program (formerly the 1208 Program) allows LEAs to receive DoD excess property. If you qualify and choose to participate, your organization will become one of over 13,000 local LEAs who have taken advantage of this unique program.

Posse Comitatus Historical Perspective

• Posse Comitatus [Latin, Power of the county.] Referred atCommon Law to all males over the age of fifteen on whom a sheriff could call for assistance in preventing any type of civil disorder.

• In 1878 the use of a posse comitatus was limited by the passage of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. This act, passed in response to the use of federal troops to enforce reconstruction policies in the southern states, prohibited the use of the U.S. Army to enforce laws unless the Constitution or an act of Congress explicitly authorized such use.

• This act was amended five times in the 1980s, largely to allow for the use of military resources to “allegedly” combat trafficking in illicit narcotics.

expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of

Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the

Air Force as a Posse Comitatus or otherwise to

execute the laws shall be fined under this title or

imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

Rule of Law according to the

World Justice Project

• The government and its officials and agents as well as individuals and private entities are accountable under the law.

• The laws are clear, publicized, stable, and just; are applied evenly; and protect fundamental rights, including the security of persons and property.

• The process by which the laws are enacted, administered, and enforced is accessible, fair, and efficient.

• Justice is delivered timely by competent, ethical, and independent representatives and neutrals who are of sufficient number, have adequate resources, and reflect the makeup of the communities they serve.

What does this destroy

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads:

• Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment

of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or

abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the

right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to

petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Misuse of biblical law

Romans 13 King James Version (KJV)

• 13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

• 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

• 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

• 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

Collaborating with Clergy

• “... a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to ‘obey the government’ in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation... The Pastor [whistleblower] was told that over 1,300 counties were already on board... Pastors [at the meeting the whistleblower attended] were asked to make a pledge or an affirmation during the meeting to fulfill the roles ascribed to them by FEMA. They were given assurances that they would be covered by full compensation in the event of resisters injuring them during property seizures and round-ups.”

• Arlington Clergy and Police Partnership (ACAPP) is a coalition of Clergy from every faith

and denomination who partner with our police agency.

• Goals of this program include: praying for the city, city leaders, police officers and special

needs; assisting the police in non-traditional roles; providing calm in crisis situations to

prevent an escalation to violence.

• It is the goal of the Arlington Police Department that after you complete this program, you

will have enough information to dispel any suspicions and misconceptions about the law

enforcement role in our criminal justice system.
