Combating Organized Crime Aussie-Style: From Law Enforcement to Prevention

Julie Ayling

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    A growing recognition of the threats posed by organized criminal activity at both domestic and international levels and of the need to work collaboratively to meet them has seen an escalation in Australian policy and legislation on organized crime in recent years. At the national level, the Australian Crime Commission has produced biannual organized crime assessments, and the Australian government has developed a National Organized Crime Response Plan (2015–2018) that includes multi-agency initiatives to share information and establish infrastructure for police from all jurisdictions to conduct joint operations. Police powers in many Australian jurisdictions have also been expanded (for example, through the introduction of unexplained wealth laws).
