Criminals’ Loss is City’s Gain

Asset forfeiture dollars pay to improve public safety services


Peoria, Ariz. (June 5, 2007) – When Peoria police arrest criminals, they regularly seize large amounts of cash and other property – and these valuables are often put to use subsequently to fight crime.

The process, known as asset forfeiture, has helped the City of Peoria purchase equipment to prevent crime and hire staff to help prosecute criminals. On Tuesday, June 5, the Peoria City Council is expected to authorize the use of asset forfeiture dollars to purchase 110 digital voice recorders for police to use during investigations.

“It seems like a small thing,” says City Attorney Steve Kemp, “but these recorders will improve our ability to prosecute cases because the quality of the recordings is so much better.” Distributing copies of the recordings will also be much easier thanks to the digital format.
This $38,000 purchase is one example of how funds seized from criminal activity are turned around to improve law enforcement and support the criminal justice system.

Since 2005, over $200,000 in asset forfeiture dollars have helped the Peoria Police Department make purchases like a police dog (and training for the handling officer), stop sticks to disable fleeing vehicles, and a customized van to carry the Special Assignment Unit (commonly called a “SWAT” team) and their gear.
The funds are put to use by city prosecutors as well, where dollars have the greatest impact by paying for contract staff (such as legal assistants) to help manage increasing caseloads.

Through asset forfeiture, vehicles can be turned over to police and put to work as undercover units, weapons seized can become city property so that they can be destroyed, and property may be sold at auction to generate cash.

Cities can gain only those assets believed to be part of drug crimes, and assets gained through forfeiture can be used only to support criminal justice purposes. When police seize cash or property the city attorney’s office requests release of the assets through a civil process in state superior court, where probable cause to believe the assets were involved in criminal activity must be demonstrated.
