Law Enforcement Agencies Missing Pentagon-Supplied Weapons

(Undated) -- The events in Ferguson are putting the spotlight on problems with a national program. Dozens of law enforcement agencies are admitting to losing track of weapons they received from the Pentagon. That has gotten nearly 150 agencies dropped from the program that provides surplus military gear to state and local departments. The Pentagon says eight-thousand law enforcement agencies take part in the program and 98-percent are in good standing. The program came to national attention last month after police in Ferguson used heavy military equipment to try to stem protests in the wake of the deadly shooting of Michael Brown.
