Home/Campaigns/Policing for Profit: The Cost of Civil Asset Forfeiture in Tennessee

Each year in Tennessee, law enforcement agents seize millions of dollars from civilians during traffic stops and other encounters, simply by asserting that they believe any assets they find are connected to some illegal activity, oftentimes without ever pursuing criminal charges. While ACLU-TN has successfully lobbied for commonsense limits on civil forfeiture, this exploitative practice still stacks the deck against property owners, essentially requiring them to prove their innocence to gain back their belongings. Learn more about policing for profit, watch videos exposing the practice on Tennessee highways, and get help if you’ve been the victim of civil asset forfeiture.
