… to Buy Flat-Screen TVs, Segways, Training From Disney

 

 

 

  ” Ever wonder exactly what local law enforcement agencies do with all the money they seize under federal and local asset forfeiture laws? TheMilwaukee Journal Sentinelreports that the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office has used it to buy:

…workout equipment for Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr.’s command staff, customer training for 50 employees through a Disney program and a mounted patrol unit, a county audit released Friday shows.

The tab for the workout gear came to $11,400; the Disney Destinations training cost $24,900; and more than $77,000 went for horse rental, boarding and transport for the sheriff’s mounted patrol. A $43,000 Dodge Ram pickup bought in 2008 to haul the horses was the largest portion of the mounted patrol spending from the fund, the report says.”
