Proceeds of Crime Squad
The Proceeds of Crime Squad deals primarily with the seizure and control of assets connected with illegal activity.
The goal of the squad is to target organised crime by removing the main incentive for crime profit.
The squad provides specialist services and investigators are trained to incorporate and administer the provisions of the Criminal Property Confiscation Act 2000, the Misuse of Drugs Act 1981 and the Criminal Investigation (Extra Territorial Offences) Act 1987, as they relate to asset seizures.
The squad works closely with WA Police staff and with other departments such as the Australian Taxation Office and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
