Body

Whereas, The Federal government has established specific guidelines for expending funds received as a result of the Asset Forfeiture Sharing Program; and

 

Whereas, these guidelines state that “sharing will be withheld from any state or local law enforcement agency if the governing body or state or local law, regulation, or policy requires or directs (1) specific expenditures of shared funds”; and

 

Whereas, The Police Department currently has funds held in trust (Fund No. 0678) to increase or enhance law enforcement efforts in the City of Milwaukee; now therefore be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the City Comptroller is authorized to transfer up to $1,010,000 from the Police Department’s Federal Forfeiture Trust Fund (Account Number 0678-3310-R999-2019-662201), to the contribution/revenue account entitled Federal Forfeiture Contribution Revenue (Account Number 0001-3310-2019-985012); and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That upon transfer of these funds, the City Comptroller is authorized and directed to transfer $1,010,000 from the Federal Forfeiture Revenue Contribution Account to the Police Department’s budget as follows:

 

0001-3310-0001-D375-006300                       $1,010,000

 

; and be it

 

Further Resolved, That all funds are to be expended to enhance law enforcement efforts in the City of Milwaukee in the categories/amounts listed above.
