Twenty years of modern criminal intelligence

In 2022, we commemorated 20 years of modern criminal intelligence.

Our anniversary publication reveals an engaging timeline on how the modern-day Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission is built on decades of experience and developments, and shaped by early state-based and Commonwealth intelligence bureaus, royal commissions and developments in Australia’s serious and organised crime landscape.

Our agency has grown from the experiences and developments of its predecessors and partner organisations, as together we work to combat the threats Australia faces from transnational serious and organised crime.
