The Boise Police Department is now returning to the federal government equipment obtained through the 1033 program, including night-vision goggles and armored vehicles.

According to KTVB-7 News, the department returned the equipment simply because the agency "did not need it anymore."

Among the equipment returned to the federal government were two pairs of night vision goggles and several firearms.

The equipment will be given to the Idaho State Police, who will then return it to the federal government.

Boise Police Chief Ryan Lee said, "There was no need for us to have that equipment. It had been sitting in an armory unused and it hadn't been used for years."
