The impact of proceeds of crime action on offending trajectoriesIn Queensland, the Crime and Corruption Commission is responsible for administering the civil proceeds of crime regime under the Criminal Proceeds Confiscation Act 2002 (Qld). In part, the legislation operates under the assumption that confiscating the proceeds of crime is an effective tool to deter crime.

However, empirical research has not tested this assumption in Australia or overseas. This project sought to address this gap in knowledge in the scientific literature. Specifically, the aim was to examine the impact of proceeds of crime action on offending trajectories. This research report details the main findings of this project.
