Trans-Tasman deal to fight organised crime

New Zealand and Australian law enforcement agencies are joining forces to fight organised crime.

New Zealand Police and the Australian Crime Commission (ACC) will share intelligence on the highest criminal risks after signing a memorandum of understanding today.

Both countries are battling similar problems such as drug trafficking, gangs, identity theft and cyber crime, says New Zealand Police director of intelligence Mark Evans.

"Today's organised crime networks are agile and innovative. They have no respect for international borders and will operate wherever they can make money. The responses required to address their offending need to be equally sophisticated and involve cross-jurisdictional co-operation," he said.

ACC chief executive John Lawler says sharing information will help improve the knowledge of international organised crime and provide both countries with ideas on how to tackle the crime gangs.
