EOCO

Economic and Organised Crime Office
Economic and Organised Crime Office

The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) was established in 1993 to lead Ghana’s efforts against the increasing challenges of economic and organised crime.  It is responsible for preventing, detecting and investigating crimes such as money laundering, human trafficking, illegal cyber activity and tax fraud.  Under the authority of the Attorney General, the EOCO can prosecute such offences and importantly, confiscate any proceeds of the crime.

EOCO’s responsibility also includes the sharing and reporting of information related to economic and organised crime, which requires working alongside related agencies and partner organisations.  EOCO’s expertise in and position to help fight complex fraud and corruption in Ghana makes it an important partner organisation for ARAP, mainly through public education activities.
