Organised crime group cultivation of Victorian public sector employees

Did you know organised crime groups are grooming public sector employees to access information, influence decisions and manipulate systems? Criminal groups have been identified targeting all levels of government including council workers, departmental officers and law enforcement employees.

Your access to databases, physical assets, buildings and decision-making processes could be very valuable to organised crime groups.

Understanding the threat helps to protect you and your public sector agency from organised crime and allows you to recognise when you could be targeted.


Your agency could be at risk

If your agency is not aware of the risks presented by organised criminal groups or lacks the basic protections against organised crime cultivation, you increase the likelihood that you could be targeted.

This document outlines some of the key risks and mitigation strategies to guard against organised crime group cultivation.
