Highest risk serious and organised crime

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission maintains the Australian Priority Organisation Target list and jurisdictional Regional Priority Organisation Target lists, and delivers tactical and strategic insights to our partners on the activities of highest risk criminals. Intelligence reporting improves our understanding of key networks, transnational criminal business models, professional facilitators, and the exploitation of global migration systems.

For example, analysis of criminal enablers identified a number of significant transnational criminals impacting Australia who had engaged in ‘golden visa’ schemes in various countries to obtain citizenship or residency. These schemes, which have become cheaper and increasingly common since the global financial crisis, often provide opportunities to move assets to jurisdictions with opaque financial systems.
