OFCANZ targets criminal groups and individuals who pose the greatest threat to New Zealand, including criminal groups working across police district boundaries, nationally and internationally.
OFCANZ main focus is on:
New Zealand Adult Gangs - particularly those identified as engaging in the illegal drugs market and serious violence.
Asian organised crime networks - with particular interest in the money laundering processes associated with these criminal networks.
Organised crime enablers - a particular emphasis on criminal offending that is aimed at enabling wider national or trans-national organised criminal activity (eg. Identity fraud, cyber crime and importing and exporting drugs and people smuggling)
