"Law Enforcement globally faces a huge challenge in countering the threat of organised crime. Organised crime groups know no boundaries. They operate nationally and internationally and have developed the requisite skills and professional services needed to conduct successful operations, avoid policing and launder criminal funds.
Whereas globally, Law Enforcement is stretched. The limited resources allocated along with the complexities of investigating and ultimately prosecuting criminal groups create a problem for Law Enforcement, which would be similar to myself having to chase down and catch Usain Bolt.
Criminal Investigations are complex and getting more so. Law Enforcement seems to be playing catch up, which is ultimately a huge policing problem. We must be in a position to recognise all available opportunities to investigate and prosecute individuals and groups whilst ensuring assets are restrained, recovered and realised, efficiently and effectively.
To effectively fight fraud and organised crime we need a multi-agency and multi-sector approach. With guidance, teaching and understanding of the red flags available, the methodologies of criminals and a clear understanding of how the criminal exploits all available options to effectively launder criminally derived funds.
Organised crime will search out Professional enablers (i.e. those able to offer a professional money laundering service) and money launderers to facilitate crimes. Professionals can be complicit or targeted, often required to open doors and provide services such as signing off transactions and moving client money; services which are not always knowingly criminal actions, but which can facilitate organised criminality.
Money launderers are needed by criminal groups to launder the proceeds obtained from their criminality. As the methods available to the launderer increase the aspect of investigation and prosecution becomes more difficult. This difficulty increases as criminal groups look to laundering criminal property through anything from cash-based to trade-based money laundering initiatives; or entering into the cyber world and developing ways to commit further offences and exploit the growth of CryptoCurrencies.
The key to successful prosecution and confiscation is unlocking and developing a joined-up policing and regulatory response. Understanding the methods undertaken by the criminal and having a clear understanding of what is available to the investigator." - Andrew Tennant
