Abstract : At your request, we are reviewing various aspects of the Department of- Justice's asset forfeiture program. In reviewing Justice's Equitable Sharing Program, in which forfeited assets are shared with state and local law enforcement agencies, we examined the internal controls at two districts of the U.S. Marshals Service-the Central and Southern Districts of California.' This report discusses the results of our internal control examination over the disbursement of sharing payments to state and local law enforcement agencies by these two districts. At a future date, we will report the results of our work on state and local law enforcement agency use of shared assets. The Executive Office for Asset Forfeiture (EOAF) directs Justice's asset forfeiture program. The U.S. Marshals Service is the key Justice agency responsible for the day-to-day management and disposal of assets forfeited through the program. (KAR) p. 2
