Asset Forfeiture Policy Manual

The manual intends to encourage the enthusiastic use of administrative, civil, and criminal forfeiture as a law enforcement tool. The first chapter addresses the law's specification of civilly forfeitable property. This includes contraband per se; controlled substances; raw materials, products, and equipment; containers; conveyances; books, records, and research; exchange money, traceable proceeds, and facilitating money; and facilitating real property. Chapter 2 presents guidelines for the seizure of property for civil forfeiture. After an overview of common seizure issues (constitutional requirements, illegality of seizure, and delay of seizure), the chapter discusses pre-seizure planning, methods of seizure, and the payment of property taxes on seized property. The third chapter address nonjudicial forfeiture proceedings, with attention to summary forfeiture, administrative forfeiture, and judicial review of administrative forfeitures. Chapter 4 profiles civil judicial forfeiture proceedings, and the remaining chapters address criminally forfeitable property; criminal forfeiture proceedings; settlement, dismissal, or discontinuance of Federal forfeiture proceedings; appellate review of forfeiture proceedings; petitions for remission or mitigation of civil or criminal forfeiture; the disposition of forfeited property; policies and practices of international forfeiture; and challenges to forfeiture enforcement under the excessive fines clause of the Eighth Amendment.

Postconviction DNA Testing: Recommendations for Handling Requests

These guidelines have been unanimously approved by the National Commission on the Future of DNA Evidence. Created in 1998 at the request of Attorney General Janet Reno, the Commission's charge was to submit recommendations to the Attorney General that will help ensure more effective use of DNA as a crime-fighting tool and foster its use throughout the entire criminal justice system. The broad scope of input enabled the Commission to develop recommendations that both maximize the investigative value of DNA technology and address the issues raised by the application of a powerful technology. As a framework for the recommendations, five broad case categories are identified. The manual also discusses the kinds of legal issues that have already arisen and others that will probably develop as applications for postconviction DNA testing continue to be made and the technology to conduct those tests advances. Biological issues in the collection and development of DNA evidence are also considered. The recommendations for handling requests for postconviction DNA testing focus on the responsibilities for prosecutors, defense counsel, the judiciary, victim assistance, and laboratory personnel. A glossary and appended resource list, State statutes on notification of victims, sample DNA test brochure, a report of the working group on postconviction issues, a subject index, and a case index.

Searching and Seizing Computers and Obtaining Electronic Evidence in Criminal Investigations

This publication provides a comprehensive guide to the legal issues that arise when federal law enforcement agents search and seize computers and obtain electronic evidence in criminal investigations.

U.S. Customs Personal Search Handbook

An invaluable tool for evaluating and litigating personal searches conducted by Customs Agents at ports of entry. Includes forms on which Customs personnel must acknowledge receipt of the Handbook and training regarding it. From preliminary discovery motions, execution of those forms by a Customs witness should permit cross-examination on the procedures mandated in the Handbook. Also addressed are: cause required for personal searches (from weapons pat-downs to medical exams), rules for detaining people, when warnings must be given, and forms to be completed during or when reporting a search. The Handbook directs, “Never use a person’s gender, race, color, religion or ethnic background as a factor in determining any level of suspicion.” That one sentence alone is reason enough to have a copy.

Preventing Gang- and Drug-Related Witness Intimidation

Many police officers and prosecutors have become increasingly frustrated by their inability to investigate and prosecute cases successfully when key witnesses refuse to provide critical evidence or to testify because they fear retaliation by the defendant or his family and friends. This problem is particularly acute, and apparently increasing, in gang- and drug-related criminal cases. Witnesses' refusal to cooperate with investigations and prosecutions should be a major concern: it adversely affects the justice system's functioning while simultaneously eroding public confidence in the government's ability to protect citizens. This report describes how several jurisdictions have carried out these victim/witness security strategies. It offers a blueprint for combining these discrete approaches into a comprehensive, structured program to protect witnesses and help ensure their cooperation with the justice system. Investigators and prosecutors can benefit by the approaches discussed here, which their colleagues have undertaken, to help ensure that offenders do not go unpunished and communities do not lose faith in the justice system.

Criminal Investigation of Child Sexual Abuse

Recognizing that interviews often play a key role in child sexual abuse investigations, the guide offers helpful hints for interviewing children and other possible victims, relatives, friends, nonoffending caregivers, and suspects. Specific questions to ask about the child, the suspect, and the relationship between the child and the suspect are identified. The guide also covers other investigative techniques, including searches and medical examinations, and focuses on the "secret" nature of child sexual abuse, the role of law enforcement in protecting children, interview procedures, physical evidence collection, and crime scene searches. A list of organizations involved in protecting children against sexual abuse is included.

Department of Defense Non-Lethal Weapons and Equipment Review: A Research Guide for Civil Law Enforcement and Corrections

Protecting suspects, prisoners, the general public, and themselves is an important goal for law enforcement officials. This report evaluates less-than-lethal weapons and technologies designed for use by police, sheriff, and corrections departments. Noting that this report, from the Department of Defense Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program, is to be used to aid law enforcement officials in selecting effective non-lethal (NL) and less-than-lethal LTL weaponry, the authors detail the DOD’s NL/LTL equipment selection process. Following a discussion of the organizational structure and purpose of the DOD’s Joint NL Weapons Program, the authors define NL weapons as those that seek to incapacitate individuals while minimizing fatalities. Brief descriptions of the development of the NL weapons programs of the United States’ Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Special Operations Command, Coast Guard, and Civil Law Enforcement departments is followed by a series of appendices detailing the various types of non-lethal weapons employed by each of these branches of law enforcement and protection services. Photographs, costs, descriptions, operational capabilities and use, and manufacturing information for each weapon are presented as well. NL weapons and equipment included within these appendices include non-ballistic face and body shields, ballistic shields, various batons, bullhorns, high intensity lights and accessories, disposable restraint systems, riot control gear, shotguns, grenades, obscuring smoke devices, and arrest barriers.
