Organised crime is now a part of the everyday lives of Australians in unprecedented ways. The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission conservatively estimates organised crime costs Australia $36 billion annually.
We create a national intelligence picture of crime, target serious and organised crime, and deliver information capability and services to frontline policing and law enforcement. We also work closely with the Australian Institute of Criminology to build an evidence base to inform policy and practice for addressing crime in Australia, through crime and justice research.
In this way, we are helping to make Australia safer by improving national ability to connect, discover, understand and respond to crime impacting Australia.
