Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission is part of the Australian Federal Police led Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce (CACT). The CACT is a Commonwealth initiative dedicated to taking the profit out of crime by targeting criminals and their assets derived from unexplained wealth.

The CACT also includes the Australian Taxation Office and was established in March 2011 to enhance the identification of potential criminal asset confiscation matters and strengthen their pursuit.

The agency  provides intelligence analysis and legal support, intelligence gathering, strategic advice on illicit money flows impacting on Australia, and helps to generate and prioritise crime targets for proceeds of crime action through the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission-led National Criminal Intelligence Fusion Capability.
