The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) has decided to discontinue the Biometric Identification Services (BIS) project.
Our aim is to increase public awareness about the work we do to create a safer Australia that is better connected, informed and capable of responding to crime and criminal justice issues.
Our Media team works closely with subject matter experts across our agency to respond quickly to media enquiries and develop professional partnerships with media outlets.
As a matter of policy we will not comment on whether the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission is (or is not) investigating a particular matter, details of ongoing operations or the specific use of the agency’s coercive powers.
Business hours (9 am to 5 pm AEST weekdays): 02 6268 7343 or media [at] acic.gov.au
After hours (urgent media enquiries): 0409 603 637
The Media team is dedicated to handling media enquiries only.
For all general public and other enquiries about our agency and the work we do, please refer to our Contact us page.
