Court Confiscations

At the independent request of a number of police force clients of Bumblebee Auctions, the system's back-office functions have been enhanced to allow it to deal with and account for items obtained by Court orders.

A Court can make a forfeiture order, or a confiscation order after conviction to deprive the defendant of the benefit that he or she has obtained from crime. A forfeiture order immediately deprives the defendant of title, whereas a confiscation order is only an order to pay a sum of money and is enforced as if it were a fine.
