SOCA operational activity is often multi-faceted with concurrent activity across the UK and internationally, these figures are therefore not available on a regional basis.
The Serious Organised Crime Agency's overall resource budget for all its activities in its first three years of operation was £1.2 billion. Since its inception, SOCA has denied criminals access to £460 million worldwide.
Asset recovery is one of the many tools that SOCA utilises to prevent organised criminals causing harm to UK citizens. The main aim of asset recovery in an organised crime context is to deny to criminals the resources that they need to operate and to make organised crime less attractive and less lucrative.
