POCA offences to be reported on Facebook

People who fund their lifestyles by the proceeds of crime are to be targeted in a new intelligence gathering campaign launched by Lothian and Borders Police.

'Made from Crime' is the first POCA (Proceeds of Crime Act) initiative of its kind in Scotland, and has the backing of both the Scottish Government and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.

It is designed to make full use of the Proceeds of Crime Act, specific legislation that allows officers to seize assets that have been purchased through criminal activity.

For the first time in Lothian and Borders Police, people will be able to report their concerns online, anonymously if they wish, using Facebook or via Bluetooth to link directly to the Crimestoppers website.
