Database of military surplus equipment sold to US police forces

Kyle writes, "The US Department of Defense has a specific program to provide: "surplus DoD military equipment to state and local civilian law enforcement agencies for use in counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism operations, and to enhance officer safety" (Excess Property Program, or 1033 Program). This equipment can account for things like planes and helicopters, grenade launchers and assault rifles.

We've grouped this data by State and by year, created rankings and averages, added information on crime and police officers killed in each state.
