LAW ENFORCEMENT - LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES
Use Of Asset Forfeiture Funds For Accreditation And Reaccreditation Of Law Enforcement Agencies Law enforcement agencies can use the net proceeds of asset forfeitures under RCW 10.105.010 for accreditation, reaccreditation, and necessary associated training which serves to improve law enforcement activity, provided that such funding does not supplant existing funding sources.  However, assets forfeited pursuant to other statutes for which the use of funds is more tightly restricted can only be used for accreditation and training  purposes, if the subject matter is closely related to the purposes of the applicable forfeiture statute.
