More than £1m was stripped from criminals in Derbyshire during the last year under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

The latest figures released by Derbyshire police show that between 1st April 2013 and the end of March 2014 almost £20,000 per week in cash and other assets were removed from offenders.

The Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) gives police and other investigating agencies the power to take criminals to court to recover the wealth people have made by committing crime such as drug dealing or selling stolen property.
