Australian Federal Police
Four core functions – prevention, deterrence, partnership and innovation.
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is the Australian government’s leading law enforcement agency. It is responsible for investigating offences against the Commonwealth of Australia and advising on the national security framework.
At national level, the AFP works with Australian government departments, state and territory law enforcement agencies and other partner agencies to disrupt, deter and defeat criminal activity.
At global level, the AFP operates within a large network of international law enforcement agencies, industry partners, and foreign governments to identify and disrupt transnational serious and organised crime.
Through its International Deployment Group, the AFP also provides a range of capacity development initiatives and peacekeeping and stability operations. The group contributes to the development, maintenance or restoration of the rule of law in countries that seek Australia's support.
The AFP is responsive to a rapidly changing criminal environment and has eight key investigative priorities. These are:
- Serious and organized crime;
- Crime operations;
- High tech crime operations;
- International Deployment Group;
- Counter terrorism.
The INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Australia is hosted by the AFP and located at its Canberra Headquarters. It works closely with Australian law enforcement agencies, regulatory bodies and relevant government agencies.
Some of the services provided by INTERPOL Canberra include:
- Operating as Australia’s point of contact for INTERPOL;
