Outcome 2

Coordinated federal criminal justice, security and emergency management activity for a safer Australia

Overview

The Department contributes to the achievement of Outcome 2 by providing policy advice and operational coordination and services in the areas of national security (including counter-terrorism and security law), emergency management, criminal justice, crime prevention, critical infrastructure protection, and protective security. The Department also undertakes a range of activities to meet obligations and responsibilities in international as well as domestic circumstances.

The Department works in consultation and cooperation with many other organisations to achieve Outcome 2. These organisations include government agencies at Commonwealth and State or Territory levels, as well as non-government and foreign institutions. They include advisory bodies, law enforcement agencies, emergency services and commercial businesses. In addition to maintaining these interrelationships with other organisations, the Department operates in an environment where international as well as domestic events or trends can play a significant role.

The administered items contributing to the achievement of the outcome include the National Community Crime Prevention Programme, the National Counter-Terrorism Committee, National Emergency Volunteer Support Fund and APEC security arrangements.

During 2007–08, we made significant and substantial progress towards achieving Outcome 2 through coordinating the security arrangements for APEC, facilitating the extradition of Tony Mokbel, coordinating Australian Government assistance in response to flooding disaster in south western Queensland, commissioning the Critical Infrastructure Protection Modelling and Analysis capability after a pilot, successfully commencing the AusCheck background checking service, and coordinating Australia’s participation in the international cyber security exercise Cyber Storm II.

Performance reports for each output contributing to Outcome 2 are presented in this chapter.
