To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

-The annual inventory form required to be completed by MSP by the state coordinator of the 1033 program
According to the DLA FAQ page regarding the 1033 program, yours is the agency in charge of coordinating the 1033 program for the state. See http://www.dispositionservices.dla.mil/leso/Pages/StateCoordinatorList.aspx
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.
Good afternoon Mr. Musgrave,
My name is Kimberly Gilson, I work in the Professional Standards Section of
the Colorado State Patrol. The purpose of my email is to inform you that
your recent request has been forwarded to me. On behalf of the Colorado
Department of Public Safety and the Colorado State Patrol, attached is the
property listing of all equipment currently in the inventory listing
(property book) for Colorado agencies participating in the 1033 Program.
The annual inventory form required to be completed by MSP by the state
coordinator of the 1033 program Attached is the property listing of all
equipment currently in the inventory listing (property book) for Colorado
agencies participating in the 1033 Program. I have also attached the final
report from our latest Program Compliance Review conducted by the Defense
In reference to the Defense Logistics list; the Unit Cost is the Department
of Defense (DoD) acquisition cost. All equipment is provided to state and
local agencies at no cost to the receiving agency. The receiving agencies
do pay for shipping or they can pick the item up at the base (e.g. Ft.
Carson). The receiving agency also pays all costs related to bringing the
equipment to usable condition. For the most part, this is used equipment
and may need some work.
Not all equipment acquired through the program is on this list. Items with
a DEMIL code of A or Q6 fall off the property books after 1 year. These are
items that are commercially available, such as boots, tools, gloves, etc.
This isn't the flashy stuff, but these items have provided a great benefit
to participating agencies through the years. Agencies are free to dispose
of DEMIL A items after one year. All other items remain on the property
book as controlled property and must be either returned to the DoD,
transferred to another agency or disposed of with permission and guidance
from the DoD.
Note that the descriptions provided are military descriptions. For
example, grenade launchers are not used by law enforcement agencies to
launch grenades. They are used to dispense less than lethal munitions.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions regarding the 1033
