The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois collected more than $118 million in 2014.

The collection included nearly $30 million in criminal debts, $80.4 million in civil actions and more than $8.7 million collected through asset forfeiture, according to a statement from the attorney’s office.

In the last 11 years, the office has collected more than $1 billion combined, the statement said.

“Every day, the justice department’s federal prosecutors and trial attorneys work hard to protect our citizens, to safeguard precious taxpayer resources and to provide a valuable return on investment to the American people,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “Their diligent efforts are enabling us to achieve justice and recoup losses in virtually every sector of the U.S. economy.”
