Our work

The AFP has a permanent presence in Africa with responsibility for strategic and operational engagement across the continent. We provide support to identify and disrupt criminal activities in the region.

Over the years we have significantly enhanced our relationship with African law enforcement, collaborating to combat crime threats, including:

We're a committed member of the multi-agency Cyber Task Team based in Pretoria. It focusses on cyber-enabled fraud and also supports other priority crime types like serious and organised crime.

We also have productive relationships with other foreign law enforcement agencies working in the region including:

United Kingdom National Crime Agency

United States Drug Enforcement Administration

Homeland Security Investigations

Federal Bureau of Investigation

Royal Canadian Mounted Police
