Crime and corruption

In this section...

We lead Australia's engagement in a range of regional and international forums and initiatives to combat corruption.

Child sexual abuse
​We have an extensive framework in place to prevent, investigate and prosecute all forms of child sexual abuse, including conduct occurring online within Australia and by Australians overseas.

Australia is a highly connected country—technology and the internet are crucial to Australia's way of life and realising the benefits of the digital economy.

Federal offenders
Federal offenders are persons who are convicted of a Commonwealth offence. Examples of Commonwealth offences include importation of drugs, terrorism, child sex offences committed using a carriage service, and social security fraud.

Foreign bribery
The Australian Government takes a strong stance against foreign bribery and other forms of corruption.

Fraud control
We are responsible for coordinating fraud control policy. This includes administering the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework and promoting the use of risk management techniques and best practice in fraud control.
