ACIC Intelligence Analysts advise senior decision makers on the highest levels of transnational serious and organised crime threats facing Australia.


The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC), as stated in its submission to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security, fully supports and recognises the legitimacy of readily available encrypted communications applications, such as those available on the Android and Apple Application stores.


The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission’s (ACIC) coercive powers, similar to a Royal Commission, are used in special operations and special investigations to obtain information where traditional law enforcement methods are unlikely to be or have not been effective.


NCIS core capability was released on schedule in December 2020 and is currently in testing with our law enforcement partners.
