The Criminal Justice Institute currently does not have any surplus computers available for donation.
Please continue to check our website for future updates.
As surplus computers become available, the Criminal Justice Institute accepts donation requests from qualifying Arkansas law enforcement agencies.
Prior to 2003, Arkansas law enforcement agencies were not eligible to receive donated equipment from State agencies. As mandated by Arkansas Code § 25-34-107, surplus computer equipment could only be distributed to Arkansas public schools or the Marketing and Redistribution Office.
This all changed with the passage of Act 1028 in the 2003 legislative session. The Act amended Arkansas Code § 25-34-107 to allow Arkansas law enforcement agencies to receive surplus computer equipment as well and has effectively given small agencies with limited resources a better opportunity for procuring needed computer and office equipment. Any State agency—which includes “every department, division, office, board, commission, and institution of the State, including state-supported institutions of higher education”—can now donate equipment to Arkansas law enforcement agencies.
