Join a team where your administrative skills are valued
The Civil Forfeiture Office (CFO) is responsible for implementing the Civil Forfeiture Act (the Act). The Act provides the Director, Civil Forfeiture with the authority to use the civil law process to pursue forfeiture via the BC Supreme Court for property and assets acquired with the proceeds of unlawful activity, or used as instruments of unlawful activity. The Act also allows the Director to use an administrative process to pursue forfeiture of certain properties. The funds recovered under the Act will be used to compensate victims of the unlawful activity, fund crime prevention and remediation programs, and pay for the costs of administering the program. The CFO maintains a very strong focus on service orientation in particular to those agencies that refer cases to the CFO.
The public policy objectives of the CFO are to remove the economic incentives of engaging in unlawful activities in general, and specifically with regard to gangs and organized crime.
The CFO has information sharing agreements with the police, other law enforcement agencies, and provincial and federal government bodies. The CFO works closely with foreign governments and other organizations as the Director assesses information about unlawful activities and prepares civil court actions with the legal team. The information shared may be highly confidential in nature, particularly as persons of interest may not have been charged with or convicted of any crimes in a criminal court. The information may relate to ongoing law enforcement investigations, including investigations of organized crime, as well as the personal and financial circumstances of persons of interest.
Administrative Assistant gathers materials for cases to refer to the Program Administrator and to provide a variety of office administrative, secretarial and financial support services for the branch. This position also coordinates the day to day priorities of the Directors, including providing liaison with ministry executive offices.
The BC Public Service is committed to creating a diverse workplace to represent the population we serve and to better meet the needs of our citizens. Consider joining our team and being part of an innovative, inclusive and rewarding workplace.
