What do CARIN members do?
CARIN works to identify the proceeds of crime wherever they are located in the world. Criminals try to hide their assets by bringing them across borders. By working together, law enforcement agencies identify these assets.
When criminal assets are identified, CARIN contact points will take steps to ensure that the assets are preserved and secured. CARIN contact points may obtain a freezing order, take possession of the asset, or utilise another power available to it.
The final step is for the criminal asset to be confiscated following a final determination by a Court. The asset or the net proceeds from the disposal of the asset will then be transferred to the State or to a designated body.
