I had to re-visit the Confiscation Act s 32 today.
It provides that the Director of Public Prosecutions or an appropriate officer may apply for forfeiture of tainted property when a person is convicted of a Schedule 1 offence.
An appropriate officer is either the Director of Public Prosecutions or the Chief Commissioner of Police.
That authority is delegated under Police Regulation Act 1958 s 6A.
The Instrument of Delegation is available from the homepage at VPM > Policies, Procedures and Guidance > Delegations > Miscellaneous.
This can be handy for those “Can they really do that?” moments.
