About Us

  • The purposes of the Major Crime (Investigative Powers) Act are:

    a)   to provide for a regime for the authorisation and oversight of the use of coercive powers to investigate and prosecute organised crime offences; and
    b)   to combat and reduce the incidence of organised crime offences.
  • The Chief Examiner and Examiners appointed under the Act have responsibility for exercising coercive powers strictly in accordance with the Act.
  • The Office of the Chief Examiner performs a separate and distinct function to that of the Chief Examiner.  The Office is staffed by police officers and Victoria Police employees.  They comprise a multi-disciplinary team of investigators, lawyers, intelligence staff and administration support.
