Authorised Powers

Transparency is the key to integrity

The Child Recovery Agency is an independent contractor to law enforcement, government, and non-government organisations for services such as Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance, Recovery, Repatriation and Extraction. These services are provided for fighting child sexual exploitation and trafficking. A CRA Agent has no law enforcement powers. The agency’s primary function is as a foreign independent contractor. As such, it does not carry out arrests, particularly in a domestic capacity. CRA agents have no powers of arrest and are not authorised to carry guns unless specified by an MOU with government and law enforcement authorities.

Key factor

CRA is not funded or directly linked with the Australian Federal Government or Law Enforcement Agencies.
