From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Crime Authority (NCA) was an Australian law enforcement agency established in 1984[1] .

In 2003 it was superseded by the Australian Crime Commission (ACC)[2] .

The NCA was set up in the wake of the Costigan Commission into tax evasion and organised crime. It was intended to lead a national law enforcement response to organised crime which could overcome the jurisdictional barriers of the Australian federal system[3] .

The NCA was frequently criticised for both misuse of power and lack of effectiveness.[4] . Businessman and former Liberal Party President John Elliott accused the NCA of running a vendetta against him inspired by the then Labor government. The NCA was replaced by the ACC in 2003 with the stated aim of streamlining the legislative and governmental framework[5].

The Australian Crime Commission (ACC) is a Commonwealth statutory body working nationally with other federal, state and territory agencies to counter serious and organised crime. The aim of the ACC is to bring together all arms of intelligence gathering and law enforcement together to fight serious and organised criminal activity. The ACC has both intelligence and investigative functions and capabilities[5] .
