In a letter dated December 21, the Justice Department announced that because of legislation imposing more than $1 billion in cuts to the DOJ Asset Forfeiture Program, it is "deferring for the time being any equitable sharing payments from the Program," effective immediately.

The letter goes on to say, "The Department remains committed to the Program and to the state, local and tribal partners that are integral to its success. We will take all appropriate and necessary measures to minimize the impact of the rescission and reinstate sharing distributions as soon as practical and financially feasible."

Typical, so essentially the Feds wont share the spoils with the very folks who do the work, the locals. They are too bust at DOJ investigating local PD, bet that budget wasn't cut a penny! My guess then is the program ends now, the Feds wont seize anywhere near the $ and items that locals do and if locals are smart they will not work with Feds and just seize thru their own state RICO statutes and keep 100% just as the Feds will now.. All local LEOs and Departmnents need to ween away from federal programs anyway since we act like whores working for the Fed cash with little credit and then are investigated by DOJ at the drop of a hat.

Well let's face it too many of the actions have become outright theft of innocent peoples money.

Leonard @ 12/28/2015 5:06 PM heart bleeds. How dare the Feds keep the monies police worked so hard to steal from citizens. How ever are they going to buy new toys we can use to steal even more. Gangs wish they could operate under the rules our police do.
