This chapter concludes the analysis of the Australian national jurisdiction presenting the final case study — that of the Australian Federal Police (AFP). It explores the AFP’s application of strategic transnational organized crime (TOC) intelligence through a detailed analysis of its corporate documents, organizational doctrine and intelligence reports, as well as data collected through semi-structured, in-depth, qualitative interviews. In doing so it provides a detailed analysis of the AFP’s conception and application of intelligence and its relationship with TOC decision-making, revealing that the strategic intelligence theories currently contained within the literature do not adequately address the complexities of strategic TOC intelligence and decisionmaking processes within the AFP.
