To maximise our collective powers and reach to protect citizens, particularly those most vulnerable. To respond to the intelligence and evidence collected in order to detect, disrupt and dissuade criminal and civil breaches of the law and to take appropriate action.
To promote and provide a reliable, safe and efficient method of sharing information and intelligence amongst the UCENet members and with partners, including through the UCENet MOU, to enable delivery of the operational plan. To publicise and promote our compliance and enforcement activities. To promote the advantages of UCENet membership and ensure an understanding of the differing environment of each jurisdiction with the aim of strengthening cooperation and coordination.
To provide meaningful training for investigators and practitioners at the annual meeting. To explore the desire or need for a consistent training program amongst the UCENet members
