About the role
The Asset Recovery Unit (ARU) is a part of the Financial Crime Group of the New Zealand Police. The unit’s primary roles are to deny criminals of 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 as a deterrent than the criminal prosecution. New Zealand Police are invested in capitalising on this prevention tool and this area of investigation is expanding.
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.
We are looking for multiple investigators who can manage reactive and proactive investigations, work closely with the criminal investigation teams targeting serious criminal activity. Prepare and execute Production Orders, Examination Orders and Search Warrants. Carry out effective interviews, and interact with members of the international financial community. Internal and external partnerships are a key focus for ARU and the successful applicants can expect to be heavily involved in investigations associated with multiple departments within Police ad our external partners.
- Prepare and present (written and verbal) information in a clear and concise manner
- Manage time effectively to complete multiple investigations and meet deadlines
- Manage competing demands and a high workload
- Keep accurate and detailed records of all information and decisions
- Prepare, manage and/or investigate serious and complex cases
- Manage risk in relation to criminal investigations
- Maintain a flexible schedule to allow for warrant executions and terminations
