According to the government program that is expected to be unveiled soon, reporting online crime could be as easy as clicking a mouse. The reports are that the national police information agency called Crimtrac is finishing the scheme dubbed the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network, or Acorn.
The statistics said that cybercrime affects about 5.4 million Australians annually, and the losses incurred amount to $1 billion. It is not a secret that the criminals become more and more sophisticated and increasingly use global networks.
A few days ago, CrimTrac CEO told a parliamentary inquiry that the new Acorn scheme, which is expected to be launched “shortly”, is supposed to complement the work already done by the agency. At the moment, the agency holds, on behalf of all police forces, the national fingerprint and DNA collections, along with an 8.7 million-record police report database and national child offender records.
The Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network will enable the Aussie citizens to securely report cybercrime online, via a website form. There are many types of matters that people can report to the agency: suspicious texts, emails or phone calls that may trick them into giving away their personal or banking information, a computer virus attack or even online bullying. The agency will also be possible to report the discovery of unauthorized, banned or “objectionable” material on the Internet.
It will be up to the police to determine which particular matters to investigate. The support with intelligence gathering will be provided with the Australian Crime Commission, while the consideration is also being given to a “tech crime offenders registry”.

|So the police don't hold all their own information and then they get to pick and choose which cases to investigate. WTF?|
Now I really feel safe.
|Or you can pick up the phone.....hello police|
|the last time i asked an australian police officer, in both new south wales & victoria states (in person) about anything related to cyber crime the exact response i got was "what do you want US to do about it?" in their usual condescending tone. The police here simply don't care! They are only interested in collecting revenue for the government, hence the reason our bicycle helmet laws are a absolute joke, you WILL get fined for not wearing a helmet! and if we do call police about cyber crime of any type, they immediately say they don't "handle" it and tell you to go google it. I have no faith in the authorities in our country. The only thing cops are good for here is shooting extremists dead outside of police stations aside from that, they are rude overbearing control freaks who will want to slap a huge fine on you just for waiting at a bus stop rather than actually do their job.|
