The Camden Assets Recovery Interagency Network (CARIN) is an informal, interagency network of law enforcement personnel that specialize in tracing, freezing, seizing, and confiscating financial assets used in and for criminal activity. CARIN’s multiagency approach is designed to effectively support the complete asset recovery process, from initial investigation, tracing of assets, freezing and/or seizure, and the forfeiture/confiscation of criminial proceeds, including resource sharing among members.
CARIN has members from 54 jurisdictions, including 28 EU member states and nine international organisations, that are represented by experts such as investigative judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers. Representatives of member states are called “national contact points”. The organization also works alongside five regional asset recovery inter-agency networks (ARINs) worldwide.
