Prosecuting Commonwealth offences

We work in an increasingly dynamic environment prosecuting a diverse range of complex crimes, which are often transnational in nature and regularly involve large quantities of electronic evidence.

Our caseload of complex matters continues to expand and evolve. It includes: criminal cartels, foreign bribery, online child exploitation, sophisticated revenue and benefits fraud, complex tax fraud, fraud by company directors, breaches of directors’ duties, large‑scale and cross‑border organised crime activity including drug offences, human trafficking, slavery and terrorism offences.

We anticipate the profile of our work will continue to change as emerging crime types, such as foreign interference, espionage, and cybercrime shape our prosecutions in the future. To ensure we are able to meet these challenges, the CDPP actively participates in the legislative reform process.
