The National Intelligence Community brings together ten agencies to protect and enhance Australia’s security, prosperity and sovereignty.

Agencies work together in support of common Australian Intelligence Missions that address priority requirements of the Australian Government.


Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) provides mission critical intelligence to combat the threats Australia faces from transnational serious and organised crime. Their integrated view of crime is made possible through connected systems and unique capabilities that are used to coordinate decision making with state and territory, Commonwealth and international partners.

The AFP is Australia's national law enforcement organisation. It has an investigative and operational focus on counter-terrorism, national and transnational crime and national security. AFP's intelligence functions aim to provide a single picture of the criminal threats relevant to AFP activities. This enables investigators to anticipate, prevent, disrupt and detect criminal activity.

Department of Home Affairs

The Department of Home Affairs plays a critical role in keeping Australia prosperous, secure and united. Through its national and border security functions, the Department coordinates an integrated approach to support Australia’s security agencies to meet the changing threat environment and position Australia for the future. This includes coordinating the Government’s response to cyber security incidents, domestic terrorism and foreign interference to protect Australia from those who seek to exploit our systems or do those that reside within harm. The Department also brings together Australia’s migration, refugee, humanitarian and multicultural affairs functions and contributes to ensuring Australia is a country of choice in the international market.
