The Association of Chief Police Officers Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (AVCIS) is a British police unit run by the Association of Chief Police Officers and responsible for combating organised vehicle crime and the use of vehicles in crime.[1] AVCIS was formed in 2006 to replace the vehicle crime related functions of the National Criminal Intelligence Service which was disbanded with the creation of the Serious Organised Crime Agency and is based in Warwickshire.[2]

AVCIS works with a number of other agencies and private companies to maintain the downward pressure on vehicle crime which has seen it reduce by 50% since 2001.[3]
