Specialist Investigator (ARU)
National Operations, Hawkes Bay
$80.951, 00 - $109.522, 00
Job Requisition ID 19263
The Asset Recovery Unit\ 's primary roles are to deny criminals the opportunity to benefit from their offending or the ability to re-invest in criminal activity. Police do this by taking away their\ "
Ill gotten gains\"
and making sure that crime really doesn\ 't pay. International trends among Law Enforcement Agencies indicate that recovering assets is often more successful and may be a bigger deterrent than the criminal prosecution. That trend is being mirrored in New Zealand and as a result, this area of investigation is growing.
The Criminal Proceeds (Recovery) Act 2009 is a relatively new piece of legislation based on civil court processes. This means you will be dealing with criminals on the\ "
Balance of probabilities\ "
. New case law is being obtained constantly and you will be encouraged to push the boundaries, use your initiative and explore ways of using the Act to recover criminal gains.
You will be part of an expanding national team based in Hawkes Bay reporting to manager in Wellington.
