About crime

Organised crime is touching the lives of Australians in unprecedented ways. The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission estimates the cost of organised crime to Australia is more than $36 billion a year.

We create a national intelligence picture of crime, target serious and organised crime, deliver information capability and services to front line policing and law enforcement, and provide crime and justice research to address crime in Australia.

We connect, discover and understand to improve the national ability to respond to crime and criminal justice issues impacting Australia.
