Australian Crime Commission (Western Australia) Bill 2003
|Long Title||The purpose of this Bill is to: provide for the operation of the Australian Crime Commission (the ACC) in Western Australia; repeal the National Crime Authority (State Provisions) Act 1985; and|
make consequential amendments to various Acts to effect the transition of the National Crime Authority to the newly created ACC. The ACC is established under the Commonwealth Act, and came into operation on 1 January 2003. The ACC combines the investigative functions of the former NCA with the criminal intelligence functions of the former Australian Bureau of Criminal Intelligence and the former Office of Strategic Crime Assessments. This Bill implements a key element of the agreement reached by Australian Government Leaders at the Summit on Terrorism and Multi-jurisdictional Crime last year and forms part of a National Cooperative Scheme to combat serious and organised crime in this country.
