On Jan. 16, Attorney General Eric Holder announced changes to the Department of Justice's Equitable Sharing Program. Under that program, local law enforcement agencies asked the federal government to "adopt" assets, such as cars and money, that were seized under suspicion of criminal activity. Police departments and prosecutors use that money to pay for one-time purchases, such as command vehicles, electronic surveillance, SWAT weapons and community-based programs.
