Focus areas

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)
