Introduced in State Parliament on 30 October 1997, the Crime Commission Bill 1997 aimed to establish a Queensland Crime Commission (QCC) with the role of investigating organised crime and paedophilia.
The QCC became an entity on 2 March 1998. In 2000-2001, the State Government announced its intention to reform and rationalise existing anti-crime and corruption arrangements by merging the QCC with the CJC, to form the new Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC).
