Controlled Equipment Request -- Instructions
A. General Information - The information in this section provides background and context for the investment(s) requested or awarded.
Program Fiscal Year: Fiscal year of the grant award or application. (Ex. If you have a 2014 grant award the Program FY is 2014
or if you are applying for a 2016 Grant Award your Program FY is 2016).
Recipient: A non-Federal entity that receives a Federal award directly from a Federal awarding agency to carry out an activity
under a Federal program. The term recipient does not include sub-recipients. See also§200.69 Non-Federal entity. (2 CFR § 200.86).
B. Applicant or Recipient Point of Contact - Identify the organization's Authorizing Official, and primary point of contact for management
of the project(s), including contact information.
Authorizing Official: Authorize to sign grant agreement on behalf of the organization.
C. Sub-recipient - Identify sub-recipient if applicable.
Sub-recipient: A non-Federal entity that receives a sub-award from a pass - through entity to carry out part of a Federal
program; but does not include an individual that is a beneficiary of such program. A sub-recipient may also be a recipient of other
Federal awards directly from a Federal awarding agency. (2 CFR § 200.93).
D. Policies - Law Enforcement Agencies and other requesting organizations identify the following policies.
Community Policing: The concept that trust and mutual respect between police and the communities they serve are critical to
public safety. Community policing fosters relationships between law enforcement and the local community which promotes public
confidence in Law Enforcement Agencies and, in turn, enhances Law Enforcement Agencies ability to investigate crimes and keep
the peace. (Recommendations Pursuant to Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page19).
Constitutional Policing: Protocols emphasize that all police work should be carried out in a manner consistent with the
requirements of the U.S. Constitution and federal law. Policies must include protocols on First Amendment, Fourth Amendment, and
Fourteenth Amendment principles in law enforcement activity, as well as compliance with Federal and State civil rights laws.
(Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page 19).
Community Input and Impact: Protocols must identify mechanisms that Law Enforcement Agencies will use to engage the
communities they serve to inform them and seek their input about Law Enforcement Agencies' actions, role in, and relationships with
the community. Law enforcement exists to protect and serve the community, so it is axiomatic that the community should be aware of
and have a say in how they are policed. Law Enforcement Agencies should make particular efforts to seek the input of communities
where controlled equipment is likely to be used so as to mitigate the effect that such use may have on public confidence in the police.
This could be achieved through the Law Enforcement Agency's regular interactions with the public through community forums, town
halls, or meetings with the Chief or community outreach divisions. (Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page 19).
After-Action Review: (1) Requesting organizations must collect and retain “Required Information” (described below) when law
enforcement activity that involves a “Significant Incident” requires, or results in, the use of any Federally-acquired controlled
equipment in the requesting organization's inventory (or any other controlled equipment in the same category as the Federally-
acquired controlled equipment). (2) When unlawful or inappropriate police actions are alleged and trigger a Federal compliance
review, and the Federal agency determines that controlled or prohibited equipment was used in the law enforcement activity under
review, the requesting organization must produce or generate a report(s) containing Required Information. (Recommendations
Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page 22).
Record-Keeping Requirement: Requesting Organizations must retain “Significant Incident” reports and Required Information
for a period of at least three (3) years and must provide a copy of these records, upon request, to the Federal agency that supplied
the equipment/funds. This information also should be made available to the community the requesting organization serves in
accordance with applicable policies and protocols including considerations regarding the disclosure of sensitive information.
(Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page 23).
FEMA FORM 087-0-0-1 (03/16)
Page 5 of 6
Appropriate Use of Controlled Equipment: Requesting organizations should examine scenarios in which
controlled equipment will likely be deployed, the decision-making processes that will determine whether controlled equipment is used,
and the potential that both use and misuse of controlled equipment could create fear and distrust in the community. Protocols should
consider whether measures can be taken to mitigate that effect (e.g., keep armored vehicles at a staging area until needed) and any
alternatives to the use of such equipment and tactics to minimize negative effects on the community, while preserving officer safety.
(Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, pages 19 - 20).
Supervision of Use: The protocols must specify appropriate supervision of personnel operating or utilizing controlled
equipment. Supervision must be tailored to the type of equipment being used and the nature of the engagement or operation during
which the equipment will be used. Policies must describe when a supervisor of appropriate authority is required to be present and
actively overseeing the equipment's use in the in the field. (Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page 20).
Effectiveness Evaluation: The protocols must articulate that the requesting organization will regularly monitor and evaluate
the effectiveness and value of controlled equipment to determine whether continued deployment and use is warranted on
operational, tactical, and technical grounds. Requesting organizations should routinely review after-action reports and analyze any
data on, for example, how often controlled equipment is used or whether controlled equipment is used more frequently in certain law
enforcement operations or in particular locations or neighborhoods. (Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page
Auditing and Accountability: There must be strong auditing and accountability provisions in the protocols which state that the
requesting organization's personnel will agree to and comply with and be held accountable if they do not adhere to agency, State,
local, Tribal, and Federal policies associated with the use of controlled equipment. (Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order
13688, page 20).
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS): Presidential Memorandum, Promoting Economic Competiveness While Safeguarding
Privacy, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties, in Domestic Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, issued February 20, 2015, requires that
State, local, tribal, and territorial government recipients of Federal grant funding for the purchase or use of UAS for their own
operations have in place policies and procedures to safeguard individuals' privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties prior to expending
funds. (Section 1(c)(vi) https://federalregister.gov/a/2015-03727
· Transparency and Notice: The protocols must articulate that the requesting organization will engage the community regarding
acquisition of controlled equipment, policies governing its use, and review of Significant Incidents (see Recommendation 2.3 below),
with the understanding that there are reasonable limitations on disclosures of certain information and law enforcement sensitive
operations and procedures. (Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, page 20).
· Significant Incident: Any law enforcement operation or action that involves (a) a violent encounter among civilians or between
civilians and the police; (b) a useofforce that causes death or serious bodily injury; (c) a demonstration or other public exercise of
First Amendment rights; or (d) an event that draws, or could be reasonably expected to draw, a large number of attendees or
participants, such as those where advanced planning is needed. (Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, pages 22
- 23).
E. Controlled Equipment Information - Applicant or recipient/sub-recipient identify and describe the requested equipment.
· Authorized Equipment List: The Authorized Equipment List (AEL) is a list of approved equipment types allowed under
FEMA's preparedness grant programs. https://www.fema.gov/authorized-equipment-list
· Number of units in inventory: Is defined as the total number in inventory regardless of how they were acquired.

Corrective Action: Action taken by the auditee that:
(a) Corrects identified deficiencies;
(b) Produces recommended improvements; or
(c) Demonstrates that audit findings are either invalid or do not warrant auditee action. (2 CFR § 200.26).
Governing Body: The term "governing body" is defined as the institution or organization that has direct budgetary oversight or
fiscal/financial control over the requesting organization. For law enforcement agencies where the chief executive is popularly elected
(e.g., Sheriffs) such requesting organizations must provide official written notice to, but are not required to obtain approval from their
civilian governing body at least 30 days in advance of any request to acquire controlled equipment from the Federal Government.
G. Regional Sharing - Identify regional sharing amongst entities.
Regional Sharing: The requesting organization must indicate whether the requested controlled equipment is being acquired to
provide a regional or multi-jurisdictional capability. (Recommendations Pursuant to Executive Order 13688, pages 28 - 29).
