The CCC deals with corruption that affects the Queensland public sector.

We have authority to deal with corruption in:

  • departments and statutory bodies
  • the Queensland Police Service
  • councils (local governments)
  • universities
  • courts, tribunals and boards, and
  • prisons.

We can investigate the conduct of:

  • public sector employees, including police officers and council employees
  • any person whose conduct is believed to corrupt or affect the performance of a public agency, and
  • state and local government politicians, but only when their conduct would, if proved, amount to a criminal offence.

We do not have authority to investigate:

  • private sector matters, unless they arise out of dealings with the public sector
  • departments or organisations in other states or territories
  • federal parliamentarians, departments or agencies.
