Dear Mr Wilkinson
Thank you for your e-mail of 15 August, in which you request information about the total
amounts recovered each year since the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 came into force.
The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (PoCA) was given royal assent in July 2002. We attach a
table showing the total amounts recovered from criminals in each year from 2003-04 to
Criminal assets recovered in England & Total value of assets recovered in each year
Wales and Northern Ireland
Please note that confiscation receipts for Northern Ireland are not included since 2010-11,
because criminal confiscation was devolved in April 2010.
Some of the data are drawn directly from law enforcement agencies and the bulk of it is
obtained from the Joint Asset Recovery Database(JARD) which provides a central
database for all information relating to the seizure of the proceeds of crime. JARD is a live
operational database and as a result, the data are subject to change on a daily basis as
cases proceed and new cases are added and resolved. Furthermore, as confiscation
orders are subject to legal challenge, future data extracts will be subject to some small
differences from previously published figures and other totals.
If you are dissatisfied with this response you may request an independent internal review of
our handling of your request by submitting a complaint within two months to the address
below, quoting reference CR 45046
. If you ask for an internal review, it would be helpful if
you could say why you are dissatisfied with the response.

As part of any internal review the Department's handling of your information request will be
reassessed by staff who were not involved in providing you with this response. If you remain
dissatisfied after this internal review, you would have a right of complaint to the Information
Commissioner as established by section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act.
