Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce

We are part of the Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce (CACT) which is led by the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

The CACT is a Commonwealth initiative dedicated to taking the profit out of crime by targeting criminals and their assets derived from unexplained wealth. It was formed in 2011 to enhance the identification and pursuit of criminal wealth, where there is a link to a Commonwealth offence.

Our 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.

The task force also utilises resources from the Australian Taxation Office, Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre and the Australian Border Force.
