The Home Office is responsible for the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 but does not itself have powers to freeze or recover assets. The powers in the Proceeds of Crime Act may be exercised by law enforcement agencies such as the National Crime Agency, Serious Fraud Office, constables and HM Revenue and Customs.
