Specialized and Military Equipment Policy

On September 30, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom approved and signed California State Legislature Assembly Bill 481, titled “Law enforcement and state agencies: military equipment: funding, acquisition, and use.” A component of this update to California Government Code Sections 7070-7075 stipulates that the San Ramon Police Department’s proposed policy must be posted on the City’s website at least 30 days before conducting any public hearing on the policy. The San Ramon City Council was presented with an ordinance for this Military Use Policy and conducted public hearings on this topic in 2022. The policy below was posted 30 days prior to any public hearings.

The City of San Ramon’s ordinance, as it pertains to specialized and military equipment possessed and used by the San Ramon Police Department, was adopted during the City Council meeting on April 26, 2022. The San Ramon Police Department will provide an annual report to the City Council to discuss this equipment in April of every year and hold a public meeting to answer any questions from our community within 30 days of this annual report.

The San Ramon Police Department's Specialized and Military Equipment Policy is available through the link provided below.
