California Assembly Bill 481 requires law enforcement agencies to obtain approval of the applicable governing body (Mayor and City Council), by adopting a military equipment use policy prior to taking certain actions relating to the funding, acquisition, or use of military equipment as defined by the legislature.

To help guide this process, and create transparency for our community, Buena Park Police Department established this webpage to provide all required materials including draft policy, current applicable equipment, and full text of the bill.
