Annotation: This report summarizes the activities and results of the U.S. Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture Program for fiscal year 1991, noting that $289 million was shared with State and local law enforcement agencies during the year.
Abstract: Forfeited property has been used to finance Federal prison construction, to finance Federal investigations and prosecutions, to provide restitution to victims of financial institution fraud, and to remove the environmental hazards caused by clandestine drug laboratories. Ten government units and agencies take part in the program. Areas that receive priority emphasis are the expansion of the international effort to find and seize the foreign assets of drug traffickers, money launderers, and other criminals and the increased use of criminal forfeiture provisions to reach criminal wealth located overseas. Revenue for the program reached an all-time high of $643.6 million during the fiscal year. Asset forfeiture has shifted from being a minor feature of Federal, State, and local law enforcement to its current status as an essential component of the Department of Justice crime control strategy.
