The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) participates in a wide range of formal and informal task forces, including multi-agency ACIC Board-approved task forces.
Multi-agency task forces involve a broad range of partners working together to disrupt criminal enterprises through intelligence-led responses. Partners may include representatives from law enforcement, the regulatory sector, peak bodies and the private sector.
Our agency's role in multi-agency task forces ranges from leading or jointly coordinating, to supporting task forces led by partner agencies.
We are also involved in several joint initiatives, networks and coordination centres that support national and international collaboration to strengthen Australia's response to crime and criminal enterprise.
Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network
The Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (the ACORN) is a national policing initiative of the Commonwealth, state and territory governments that allows people to securely report cybercrime and recognise and avoid common types of cybercrime.
For more information, see the ACORN page.
Australian Gangs Intelligence Coordination Centre
The Australian Gangs Intelligence Coordination Centre (AGICC) is an initiative that is building the intelligence picture around known gangs.
For more information, see the AGICC page.
National Criminal Intelligence Fusion Capability
The National Criminal Intelligence Fusion Capability brings together subject matter experts, investigators, analysts, data and tools from a range of government agencies to build the intelligence picture to respond to serious and organised criminal threats.

Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce
We are part of the Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce (CACT), which is led by the Australian Federal Police. The CACT is a Commonwealth initiative dedicated to taking the profit out of crime by targeting criminals and their assets derived from unexplained wealth.
For more information, see the CACT page.
Commonwealth Serious Financial Crime Taskforce
The Commonwealth Serious Financial Crime Taskforce (SFCT) is a multi-agency taskforce that forms part of the Fraud and Anti-Corruption Centre, which is led by the Australian Federal Police. The SFCT brings together the knowledge, resources and experiences of federal law enforcement and regulatory agencies to identify and address serious and complex financial crimes.

National Task Force Morpheus
The ACIC-led National Task Force Morpheus (Morpheus) is a joint initiative of all law enforcement agencies, with a broad focus on all outlaw motorcycle gangs that pose a risk to the Australian community. Our strategic assessments in this area assist Morpheus to focus on the highest-risk outlaw motorcycle gangs.
For more information, see the Morpheus page.
Vestigo Task Force
The ACIC-led Vestigo Task Force (Vestigo) provides a framework to enhance our collaboration and engagement with Australian and international partners to share information and intelligence. This strengthens the ability to combat transnational serious organise crime activities impacting adversely on Australia's national interests and the interests of our overseas partner countries.
For more information, see the Vestigo page.
Illicit Tobacco Taskforce
We are part of the Illicit Tobacco Taskforce (ITTF) which is led by the Australian Border Force. The ITTF has a full array of powers to effectively investigate, prosecute and dismantle international organised crime groups that are profiting from the illicit tobacco trade.
