• Project Title:
  • Review of Postal Inspection Service Asset Forfeiture Fund
  • Start Date:
  • Wednesday, October 24, 2018
  • Estimated Report Release Date:
  • April 2019

The Postal Inspection Service’s Asset Forfeiture Program enables the Postal Inspection Service to pursue forfeitures in mail fraud, narcotics, child exploitation, money laundering, and most other financial criminal investigations conducted by postal inspectors. The Postal Inspection Service is authorized to pursue criminal and civil forfeiture proceedings and participates in the Department of Justice (DOJ) asset forfeiture program, which allows law enforcement agencies to be reimbursed for forfeiture expenses through sharing asset forfeiture proceeds.

The Asset Forfeiture Fund (AFF) is used for law enforcement purposes, including crime prevention, security, forfeiture-related training or other uses designated by the Chief Postal Inspector. Use of asset forfeiture funds must provide a national benefit as opposed to benefiting an individual division or function.

  • How can management of the Postal Inspection Service’s Asset Forfeiture Fund be improved?

    Mismanagement??? Have you seen the way the inspection service “manages” the Postal Police Force??? Then again the USPSOIG is filled with ex postal inspectors who couldn’t manage a checkbook
