The year 2007 marked the Bureau’s twelfth year in existence and it continues to pursue its statutory objectives, carrying out investigations and wherever possible taking action, utilising the Proceeds of Crime, Revenue and Social Welfare legislation against the suspected proceeds of criminal conduct. Resulting from these investigations and actions, the Bureau forwarded in excess of €10 million to the Central Exchequer.

The increase in the number of Proceeds of Crime applications initiated in the course of the year demonstrates a policy shift towards earlier or preliminary applications, focused on lower value assets. The approach tends to target a more middle ranking criminal and, while it may not realise extensive funds, illustrates the Bureau’s ability to react to local community concern and as such is seen as an effective use of Bureau resources.
