Forfeiture Grant Awards Ceremony

11/14/18

Chief Holloway will award $100,000 in forfeiture grant money to 47 local programs on Thursday, November 15th, at 10 a.m., at the Sunshine Center Auditorium, 330 5th Street North.

The Chief is required to give 25% of the total revenue generated each fiscal year back to the community. This year that would be $29,650.00, instead the Chief set aside $100,000 for this year’s program, more than three times the required amount!
The forfeiture money will help a wide variety of community groups and organizations fund projects that seek to improve neighborhood safety, promote crime prevention, provide drug abuse education, offer drug abuse treatment or prevention services, and School Resource Officer programs. The Chief is especially interested in assisting programs promoting positive behavior for children and teens.

Please see attached list of groups/programs receiving checks.

The asset forfeiture funds come from the seizure of money/assets involved in criminal activity. It is administered by the St. Petersburg Police Department Legal Division, under the supervision of General Counsel Sasha Lohn.
