As a powerful law enforcement, intelligence and national security body, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission Board provides a significant platform to drive the collegial approach necessary to make Australia better connected, informed and capable of responding to serious criminal threats.

The role of the board includes:

  • providing strategic direction and determining agency priorities
  • determining national criminal intelligence priorities
  • authorising special ACIC investigation and operations, which allows the use of our coercive powers.
  • making recommendations about charges for national policing information services, including criminal history checks
  • determining priorities in relation to national policing information systems and services, and providing recommendations to the Attorney-General for investment to improve, maintain and expand those information systems and services.
