Civil asset forfeiture allows law enforcement to seize an individual’s property often without requiring that they be charged or convicted of a crime. While some states have moved to restrict this practice, federal law enables state and local law enforcement to partner with federal agents to seize assets and receive a share of the takings back in return. Despite a recent temporary pause in the Department of Justice’s Equitable Sharing Program, the funds are once again flowing. Please join the Charles Koch Institute and a panel of former law enforcement officials and civil asset forfeiture experts to discuss these important developments and more.

Lunch will be provided.
