Ioyce Hermans 45 NW 2nd St. Ortonvflle, MN (320) 839-6194 Authonzed Independent agent/agency for Au( criminal State Auditor Rebecca Otto today released the Criminal Forfeitures Report. which provides information on the amount of cash and property seized subject to forfeiture by Minnesota law enforcement agencies in 2009. The report lists and summa- rizes these forfeiture incidents to help provide transparency to the forfeiture process, and to keep policymakers and the public informed on the nature and frequency of property seized sub. ject to forfeiture. "The Metro Gang Strike Force issues in 2009 raised the legislature's and the public's level of awareness of criminal forfeitures in the State ot Minnesota. As a result, the legislature made many changes to the criminal forfeiture laws. and to the reporting requirements for criminal forfeitures. The more extensive reporting reqmre- meats go into effect August 1 st of this year and will be reflected in the 2010 report," said Auditor Otto. "One examp!e of a new reporting require- ment is that law enforcement agencies will have to report DUI forfeitures to the Office of the State Auditor." Highlights from the report include: In 2009, 218 Minnesota law enforcement agencms (7 fewer agen- cies than in 2008) reported a total of 4.895 incidents of property seized subject to forfeiture. While 7 fewer law enforcement agencies reported forfeiture incidents in 2009. the total number of incidents increased by 1,072 forfeiture incidents, or 28.0 per- cent, more than the number reported in 2008. Gross sales of forfeited property or seized cash totaled $4.778.457 in 2009. up 25.0 percent from the $3.823.463 reported in 2008. Administrative expenses and lien holders 'ob.ligations decreased 2.4 per- report cent between 2008 and 2009. falling from $356.362 in 2008 to $347.745 in 2009. Net proceeds totaled $4,449.152 in 2009, which was 27.1 percent more than the $3,500,434 reported in 2008. Cash accounted for 54 percent (55 percent in 2008) of property seized, followed by firearms at 26 percent (18 percent in 2008), vehicles at 19 per- cent (26 percent in 2008), and other property at l percent (1 percent in 2008). Of the 4.895 forfeiture incidents reported. 3579 involved seized cash, property that was sold, or an agree- ment that required monetary compen- sation to the agency. The total value of net proceeds from these forfeitures was $4,449,152. Net proceeds derived from forfeitures ranged from $0 to $95,102. Net proceeds per forfeiture incident averaged $1.243 in 2009. compared to $1,073 in 2008. Criminal activity involving a con- trolled substance accounted for 3.773 (77 percent) of the 4.895 forfeiture incidents reported in 2009. The agencies with 100 or more forfeiture incidents completed in 2009 were: the Minneapolis Police Department (1,207), the Saint Paul Poll ce Department (806), the Minnesota State Patrol (257), the Dakota County Drug Task Force (194). the Southeast Minnesota Drug Task Force (182), the Northwest Metro Drug Task Force (112), and the Hennepin County Sheriffs Office (lOO). In addition to the 218 law enforce- ment agencies that completed forfei- tures in 2009. 241 agencms reported that they had no forfeitures, and 34 did not file reports with the Office of the State Auditor.
