Proceeds of Crime Act

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 13 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proportion of assets seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 were returned to the Cambridgeshire Constabulary from seizures in the Cambridgeshire police force area in each year since 2003-04; what the value was in each year; and if he will make a statement. (77082)

The police asset recovery incentive scheme came into force in 2004-05. Under the scheme, agreed with the Association of Chief Police Officers, police forces received one-third of all assets recovered above £40 million in 2004-05, rising to one-half in 2005-06 allocated to individual forces on the basis of their performance.

Cambridgeshire Constabulary received an incentive payment of £410,828 for their performance in 2004-05 and will shortly receive a payment of £48,033 for 2005-06.
