The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission Media team works closely with subject-matter experts within the agency to facilitate engagement with local, national and international news organisations.
Our aim is to increase public awareness of the work the agency does to create a safer Australia that is better connected, informed and capable of responding to crime and criminal justice issues.
The Media team is committed to responding to media enquiries in a timely matter and forging a professional partnership with media outlets.
As a matter of policy the agency will not comment on whether it is (or is not) investigating a matter, ongoing operations or the specific use of the agency’s coercive powers.
The Media team liaises with members of the media and not the general public.
The media office is staffed between 9 am and 5 pm weekdays and can be contacted
