In support of our vision to create a safer Australia that is better connected, informed and capable of responding to crime and criminal justice issues, we make a range of unclassified intelligence products and public submission and corporate documents available to the public.

Our agency works closely with the Australian Institute of Criminology. You can view their publications on their website.


To help inform the public about crime affecting Australia, we make a range of unclassified intelligence products publicly available as unclassified reports, including the National Wastewater Drug Monitoring Program reports and the Illicit Drug Data Report.

Public submissions

We provide specialist advice to government on a range of topics that intersect with organised crime, information sharing for law enforcement, and criminal justice research.

For more information, see the Public submissions page.

Corporate documents

We publish publicly available corporate documents on our website, including annual reports, strategic plan and corporate plan.

For more information, see the corporate documents page.

Endorsed by the board, our one-page strategic direction is key part of our planning framework, and outlines our strategic objectives to enable us to achieve our purpose.

The ACIC is a Commonwealth entity that performs a regulatory function, and is therefore considered an entity within the Attorney-General’s portfolio. As a regulator, the ACIC responds to a Ministerial Statement of Expectations, issued by a responsible Minister to a regulator or entity with regulatory functions, with a Regulator Statement of Intent that, in turn, identifies how we will deliver on the Government’s expectations.

The Executive Government sets out its guidance through Ministerial Statements of Expectations. These Statements are issued by the responsible Minister to a regulator or an entity with regulatory functions, to provide greater clarity about government policies and objectives relevant to the regulator’s statutory objectives and how it conducts its operations.

Report 18 of the ACIC’s wastewater program covered sampling in August and October 2022. In August, 58 wastewater sites were monitored nationally, covering approximately 57% of the Australian population.
