ACIC staffing

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission is Australia’s national criminal intelligence agency with investigative and information delivery functions. Our role is to reduce serious and organised crime threats of most harm to Australians and the national interest, and provide national policing information systems and services.

We have a presence in every state and territory and several overseas locations. This allows us to work closely with state and territory, national and international law enforcement partners to target criminals.

We are committed to protecting Australians from serious and organised crime. To achieve this we require a flexible workforce that is structured to enable operational effectiveness and best service our law enforcement partners.

The ACIC has recently developed a new organisational design that places the skills and capabilities of our workforce in the location we need, which includes centralising some roles that have a national focus.

We will continue to have a strong operational presence in each state and territory, including Queensland.

The new organisational design does not reduce our current staffing level and is not about cutting the number of roles we have.

At this time it is not possible to confirm the number of roles that are affected as we are in the process of liaising with individual staff on the options available to them.

Throughout this process, staff have been consulted in accordance with the provisions of the ACIC Enterprise Agreement.

While the threat of serious and organised crime remains significant for Australia the ACIC, in conjunction with our partners, continues to achieve excellent results within our current resources.
