SUMMARY STATEMENT:

Pursuant to criminal convictions, the State of Alaska Court system frequently orders the forfeiture of firearms used or possessed during the commission of a criminal offense.  The firearms are subsequently forfeited to the Valdez Police Department and stored in the Valdez Police Department evidence room until they are either destroyed or disposed of via auction.  The proceeds from this forfeited firearm auction represent the sale of 48 firearms and a period of approximately 10 years.
