From September 2015, the Australian Government will be introducing a new National Terrorism Threat Advisory System.
The National Terrorism Threat Level is a scale of five levels that tells the public about the likelihood of an act of terrorism occurring in Australia.
- Not expected
It enables authorities, businesses and individuals to take appropriate measures for their own safety and security as well as that of their family, friends and associates.
The Australian Government regularly reviews the threat level and our security environment. When the government makes a change to the National Terrorism Threat Level it will explain why there is a change.
For information on the current threat level visit the Australian Government website or watch the below video.
How you can report suspicious activity
The National Security Hotline is the single point of contact for the public to report possible signs of terrorism. Every piece of information is treated seriously, as it could be vital in preventing a terrorist act. The hotline also provides information to callers on a wide range of national security matters.
If you see anything suspicious, report it to the National Security Hotline on 1800 1234 00.
For information on ACT Policing’s role in managing terrorist related activity visit the states and territories section of the Australian Government National Security website.
