USD $100.00Early Bird Registration $USD 75.00 (August 1)

Asset recovery additionally stops criminals enjoying the proceeds of their crimes, as well as it removes capital from the criminal economy so it cannot be used to fund other criminal activities. A large proportion of the money received by the government as a result of asset recovery is then given back to the law enforcement agencies as an incentive towards recovering assets and to help reduce crime further.
