Intelligence careers

By gathering information, producing intelligence, and making the connections, our intelligence analysts, investigators, financial analysts and surveillance operatives play a vital role in investigations of criminal and corrupt activity.

They also:

  • recruit, handle, manage and evaluate human sources (informants) — an essential element in the investigation of criminal activity and corruption
  • provide intelligence advice on candidates for witness protection, and help assess  associated risks and threats
  • collaborate in producing publications examining drug use trends, markets, and prices for police and law enforcement officers involved in drug investigations.

Strategic intelligence

Our intelligence officers monitor trends in organised crime markets (including property crime, money laundering, fraud and illicit drug markets), criminal paedophilia and corruption. They assess the nature and extent of risk from these areas, and recommend strategies to deal with it.

They also analyse and assess networked criminal activity and/or corrupt conduct by:

  • developing person profiles
  • analysing call charge records
  • providing intelligence reports and summaries.

This information can then be referred to CCC investigative teams or other state and commonwealth agencies for any action required.

Operational intelligence

The primary role of intelligence officers in our multidisciplinary investigation teams is to provide tactical intelligence and analytical products to guide and support operations.

Techniques used include:

  • developing  threat assessments on targets
  • identifying targeting opportunities for the CCC or other law enforcement agencies
  • providing supporting information for affidavits for electronic surveillance devices and telecommunications interception.
