Sharing national policing information for a safer community
CrimTrac’s partners are Australia’s nine police agencies and the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department, who are all signatories to CrimTrac’s Inter-Governmental Agreement and partnership Memorandum of Understanding.
CrimTrac has the endorsement of all states and territories. Australia’s police agencies recognise the benefits to be gained from sharing national policing information, and they work in partnership with CrimTrac to develop and implement national information sharing services.
CrimTrac works in partnership with Australia’s nine police agencies to provide a national view of policing information.
CrimTrac’s stakeholders are government agencies and departments (other than the police and Attorney-General’s Department) or other forums which contribute to law enforcement or national security. CrimTrac’s stakeholders include:
In 2008, CrimTrac was invited to join the Heads of Commonwealth Operational Law Enforcement Agencies (HOCOLEA). This forum comprises Commonwealth agencies that administer and enforce Commonwealth legislation.
The Acts of Parliament administered by HOCOLEA contain a range of enforcement sanctions including prosecution for criminal offences, the conduct of civil proceedings, the imposition of administrative sanctions, and other remedies.
The Australian New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency (ANZPAA) provides policing policy and strategic advice, undertakes research, and provides knowledge management services to police ministers and commissioners throughout Australia and New Zealand.
CrimTrac and ANZPAA engage on matters involving the management and exchange of policing information to ensure that benefits for police, law enforcement and national security are realised.
CrimTrac’s CEO attends ANZPAA Board meetings as an observer and CrimTrac is a member of ANZPAA’s Liaison Forum.
