The Crime and Misconduct Commission (2001-2014) was born out of the merger of the Criminal Justice Commission and the Queensland Crime Commission.
It commenced on 1 January 2002, absorbing the roles of the former CJC and the former QCC. In 2001, the State Government had signalled its intention to amalgamate the Criminal Justice Commission (CJC) and the Queensland Crime Commission (QCC) to form a single crime and misconduct-fighting body, the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC).
