Referrals / investigation services for government
If you are a member of the public wishing to contact the AFP please visit Reporting a crime.
The AFP offers a range of investigation services to other departments and agencies, and may be requested to undertake or assist with investigations including:
- serious and complex matters including fraud, drug trafficking, organised crime, money laundering and people smuggling
- operational assistance in the course of another department or agency's criminal investigation including execution of S3E Crimes Act 1914 search warrants international liaison and INTERPOL requests
- financial investigation services including training, advice and guidance relating to proceeds of crime
- computer forensics and other forensic services
- electronic evidence services including training, advice and forensic examination of seized computers and electronic items
Before referring matters to the AFP departments and agencies should:
- refer to the Commonwealth's Fraud Control Policy (Attorney General's Department)
- read the protocols for referrals to the AFP
- consider whether the matter is likely to be politically sensitive
- be aware of how the AFP sets its operational priorities
Referrals are made through AFP Operations Monitoring Centres. To ensure that the AFP's resources are directed to the highest priority activities, all referrals are assessed using the AFP's Case Categorisation and Prioritisation Model.
