COURSE OBJECTIVES: This course is designed to meet the educational requirement for Asset Forfeiture and Intermediate Proficiency Certification. This course is a required course and was established as a legislative mandate during the 77th Regular Session by Senate Bill 77R-SB563. Asset Forfeiture is a complex process that requires a thorough understanding of current statutes relating to seizable assets under current Texas Law. It also requires a thorough understanding of the process for forfeiture and exemptions relating to asset seizure. Currently, drug trafficking accounts for the largest portion of asset forfeitures in Texas. In May 2001, the Texas Senate passed Senate Bill 563 which amended not only the Code of Criminal Procedure, but also the Occupations Code relating to law enforcement officer training. At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of asset forfeiture to the level required by SB563.UPDATED: April 2021
