CA Assembly Bill 481

On September 30, 2021, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 481 to address the funding, acquisition, and use of military equipment by law enforcement agencies in California. Assembly Bill 481 has designated certain equipment as “military equipment”, regardless of whether it was procured from the military or not. Although the Solano County Sheriff’s Office does not have military weapons as defined by AB 481, in the interest of transparency, a full list of the Sheriff’s Office inventory relative to AB 481 is available below in draft form.
