Abstract: Money laundering has a high incidence in the world. In order to effectively combat and contain money laundering, we can carry out threat assessment against money laundering gangs, so as to determine key targets of fighting crimes and reasonably allocate police resources. This method originates from the theory of intelligence-led policing. Through Delphi and Pearson correlation coefficient, the author selects 13 indicators such as concealment ability, degree of specialization, connection with upstream criminal gangs, intelligence ability, etc. to profile money laundering gangs, and further evaluates the harmfulness of money laundering with its upstream crimes, thus forming a comprehensive evaluation model to measure the threat of these crimes. This model can help the police clarify the organizational structure and operation mode of money laundering and related criminal gangs, find their vulnerability and finally optimize the strategic decision-making of anti-money laundering intelligence investigation.

Key words: Money laundering, Anti-money laundering (AML), Threat assessment, Intelligence-led policing, Harm-focused policing
