Police lobby fights to keep military gear

•, Megan R. Wilson

Law enforcement groups argue a Pentagon program that provides surplus military gear helps protect the public and are gearing up for a fight with lawmakers and the Obama administration over whether it should be continued.

"We are the most vigorous law enforcement advocacy group and we intend to be at our most vigorous on this issue," said Jim Pasco, the executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police organization in the country.

The Fraternal Order and other groups told The Hill that they are already meeting with lawmakers' offices in an attempt to get a jump on the issue before Congress returns from the August recess.
