Asset-oriented law enforcement is a collective term for all forms of action taken against property arising from criminal activity. The basic strategy for asset-oriented law enforcement is to remove the possibility of enriching crime and block illegitimate gain.
If the driving force for economic and serious organized crime is money – and what money can buy – the practicing against crime should have the same focus. In order for this strategy to be successful, appropriate tools are needed.
The authors provide their view on the asset-oriented approach and can contribute to disseminating knowledge about it in a single volume. This anthology is intended to function as a handbook where several key actors help to spread knowledge about how to deal with these issues. The Swedish Social Insurance Agency, the Swedish Enforcement Authority, and the Swedish Tax Agency is already collaborating with the Swedish Police and other law enforcement agencies. Access investigators have become a new occupational group besides police officers, prosecutors and tax attorneys. To “Follow the money” has become an increasingly more important field within criminology.
The following authorities have participated in the work of this anthology: the Swedish Economic Crime Authority, the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, the Swedish Police, the Swedish Tax Agency, the Swedish Enforcement Authority, the Swedish Customs, the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, and Lund University.
