Asset Forfeiture

The Asset Forfeiture Program is an integral law enforcement tool that benefits the Postal Inspection Service by: 1. punishing criminals by taking the profit out of criminal activity, 2. preserving the forfeited assets for identified victims whenever possible, 3, increasing revenue for law enforcement purposes, and 4. providing an enhanced 'esprit de corps' among law enforcement through equitable sharing.
