Proceeds of Crime Centre


The Proceeds of Crime Centre (PoCC) is responsible for accrediting and monitoring the performance of all financial investigators in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Centre also provides law enforcement with training in financial investigation, asset recovery and the operation of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002, the legislation which underpins these activities.

The Centre also works closely with police forces and the other agencies with powers under POCA offering operational support and education to all accredited financial investigators.

Information for the regulated financial sector

Key employees within the regulated sector can apply for access to the financial intelligence gateway (FIG) list. This access offers the regulated sector the ability to confirm the identification of financial investigators before releasing financial information. Regulated sector organisations are requested to keep their contact details updated with PoCC to ensure financial investigators are directed to the correct regulated sector organisation.

For information about our services, please contact the Proceeds of Crime Centre or visit us on the Police OnLine Knowledge Area, POLKA from a GSI or PNN network.
