Integrated Proceeds Of Crime’s (IPOC) role is to identify, assess, seize, restrain and forfeit any illicit wealth. These proceeds undermine the social and economic well-being of Canadians and at the same time, increase the power and influence of organized criminals and illegal enterprises. IPOC detects and deters money laundering and the financing of terrorist activities, along with the facilitation of investigation and prosecution of money laundering and terrorist financing offences.
IPOC is integrated in that it works closely with RCMP detachments, specialized units, municipal police forces and several external agencies in the conduct of proceeds of crime or money laundering investigations. Please click here for a list of the integrated units.
The RCMP Federal Integrated Proceeds of Crime unit assisted Kamloops RCMP in forfeiting a house to Crown as an offence related property in the investigation. Offence Related Property is a property that is used for committing criminal offences and can be taken from the criminal and turned over to government, as in this case.
