Application

This unit describes the skills required for the planning and implementation of asset confiscation operations, and includes the identification, seizure and disposal of property and assets involved in criminal activity. This includes having to refer the investigation or assets appropriation to other law enforcement agencies when required.

This unit applies to those working as police officers, generally in a designated investigation role, responsible for confiscating assets. This unit is discrete and separate from other aspects of asset and evidence handling in the investigation process.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out. Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered to, particularly those related to information security, information management systems, and codes of conduct.

Those undertaking this unit would demonstrate strong autonomy, making independent decisions and accessing support from a broad range of policing services. They would be required to possess strong decision making and problem solving skills, leadership abilities and advanced communication skills. They would perform complex tasks in a range of contexts.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to unit at the time of publication.
