New crime commission facility

The Federal Minister for Home Affairs, Bob Debus, says the new headquarters for the Australian Crime Commission will play a big role in helping to dismantle organised crime syndicates.

The purpose-built facility in Canberra will be an administrative and intelligence hub for the Commission.

Mr Debus says organised crime is estimated to cost the community around $10 billion a year.

"The Australian Crime Commission is enormously important in its capacity to gather together the kind of information that allows other law enforcement agencies to fight organised crime, and now they've got a facility to match the importance of their task," he said.
