Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism

Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism

Regional Forums

Posted on 17.03.2021

This year the Queensland Police Service (QPS) in accordance with Australia-New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee (ANZCTC) Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism is facilitating a number of ‘Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism’ Forums around the State.

The objective of the strategy is to protect the lives of people working in, using, and visiting crowded places by making them more resilient to terrorism. Protecting crowded places from terrorism is not just a job for governments, it is a responsibility shared by the private sector and the community. The success of this strategy rests on the sustainable and strong partnerships across Australia between all government and owners and operators of crowded places.

The primary vehicle for police to engage collectively with owners and operators of crowded places are ‘Crowded Places Forum’ . The purpose of these forms is to enable better information sharing and guidance in threat and protective security information.

Given the crowds Queensland sporting events attract, we would love for as many sport and recreation associations to attend these forums as possible.

Please find below the dates and locations.
