Q May municipality use seized or forfeited funds to purchase a public service announcement on a large video board during a college football game to educate and inform the community about the municipal police department and assist in recruiting?

A Yes, forfeiture funds must be used for law enforcement purposes. It is the opinion of the Attorney General that expenditures for educating the public about law enforcement and for recruitment purposes are proper uses of forfeiture funds. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Nichols, September 30, 2016)
