The Law Enforcement Protection Program has been in effect since 1998. The proceeds from these sales of confiscated firearms have been instrumental in equipping Kentucky law enforcement personnel with personal body armor and other equipment which enabled officers to better serve the citizens of Kentucky. In 2008, the Kentucky General Assembly made the Kentucky State Police the administrator of the forfeited gun sales.

In an effort to improve customer service and streamline the payment process, the following change has been implemented: Cash will no longer be accepted. Preferred methods of payment include cashier’s check, money order, certified check or personal check with bank letter.
