The Kansas Standard Asset Seizure and Forfeiture Act (KSASFA), K.S.A. 60-4101 et seq., was passed in 1994.
Under this act, a Kansas law enforcement agency is authorized to seize property and cash the agency alleges is involved with certain criminal activity. In 2018, the Kansas legislature passed K.S.A. 60-4127 which requires all Kansas law enforcement agencies to report asset seizure and forfeiture information to the Kansas Asset Seizure and Forfeiture Repository (KASFR).
The KASFR website was launched in accordance with the 2018 legislation to provide Kansas law enforcement agencies with a method to report asset seizure and forfeiture information. The website allows the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to collect and maintain the reports submitted by law enforcement agencies to provide a representation of asset seizures and forfeitures in the State of Kansas. It also provides a means for the information to be publicly available.
The information submitted to this repository consists of completed forfeiture actions. A completed forfeiture action includes any civil forfeiture case with completed court proceedings, as well as any case that may have been resolved by the law enforcement agency prior to or during court proceedings. The report is not submitted to the repository until the forfeiture action is complete.
The Log-in feature of this website is only available to Kansas law enforcement agencies for the purpose of submitting Asset Seizure and Forfeiture reports.
For any questions regarding the site or repository, please email the KBI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
