En lo que respecta a las armas de propiedad del Estado, la Dirección General de Armamento y el Arsenal Nacional requieren de todas las dependencias del Ministerio de Seguridad Pública que remitan en forma mensual un inventario global de las armas, cargadores, municiones y equipo policial asignado; y en forma trimestral un inventario detallado que incluya número de serie y patrimonio de todo el armamento. Paralelamente a lo anterior, los inspectores se desplazan a las diferentes unidades, con el fin de levantar inventarios físicos y compararlos con los remitidos oportunamente.
