TER­ROR­ISM PRE­PARED­NESS EN­HANCED

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch - – As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Paul Steel

WA Po­lice re­cently con­ducted a suc­cess­ful three-day coun­tert­er­ror­ism joint ex­er­cise across the Perth met­ro­pol­i­tan area. The sce­nario used for the ex­er­cise re­quired a close work­ing re­la­tion­ship with and phys­i­cal de­ploy­ment of Aus­tralian De­fence Force and Aus­tralian Fed­eral Po­lice per­son­nel. Emer­gency man­age­ment ar­range­ments are an im­por­tant part of on­go­ing pre­pared­ness ac­tiv­i­ties that con­trib­ute to our level of op­er­a­tional readi­ness. We are con­fi­dent that go­ing for­ward our re­la­tion­ships and leg­isla­tive knowl­edge will be en­hanced as a re­sult of this ex­er­cise.
