The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) is Australia's national criminal intelligence agency. Their vision is for a safer Australia that is better connected, informed and capable of responding to crime.

They work with their state and territory, national and international partners on investigations and to collect intelligence to improve the national ability to respond to crime impacting Australia. Their coercive powers give them a unique intelligence collection capability and allow them to inform and provide critical contributions to national strategies to combat serious and organised crime, cybercrime and national security threats.

They are the conduit for sharing criminal information and intelligence between all state, territory and Commonwealth law enforcement agencies. They provide national criminal information and intelligence services to more than 70,000 police officers and other accredited users on a daily basis to keep them, and the Australian community safe.

The ACIC Board provides strategic direction to the ACIC and represents Commonwealth, state and territory law enforcement and other regulatory agencies.

What they do

Their role includes reducing serious and organised crime threats of most harm to Australians and the national interest and providing national policing information systems and services.

They do this by:
  • enhancing the national picture across the spectrum of crime by developing strategic criminal intelligence assessments and advice on national crime
  • working with international and domestic partners to disrupt the activities of serious and organised crime targets and reduce their impact on Australia
  • conducting special operations and special investigations addressing priority areas
  • developing and maintaining national information and intelligence sharing services and systems.
