CrimTrac is an executive agency within the Australian Commonwealth Attorney-General's Portfolio. It was established in 2000 under an Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) between the Commonwealth and each of Australia's nine police agencies. The IGA underpins CrimTrac's mandate to lead the delivery of national information-sharing services for law enforcement agencies. In 2006, CrimTrac and all state and territory police commissioners entered into a partnership Memorandum of Understanding, which supports the IGA.
CrimTrac works in partnership with Australia's police agencies to provide services that allow police to easily share information with each other across state and territory borders. By providing officers with more complete national information, CrimTrac's services help police to investigate, solve and prevent crimes.
