The number one priority of the Victorian Government is the safety and security of the people of Victoria.
The Victorian Government takes a joined up approach in responding to the threat of terrorism – working with all key partners. This approach seeks to balance the human rights of all Victorians, while acknowledging that the unique nature of terrorism demands extraordinary measures. It is underpinned by a focus on community resilience and social cohesion.
By working together we can minimise the threat and impact of terrorism in Victoria.
This Statement outlines the arrangements that are in place to protect and support Victorians before, during and after an act of terrorism. It also provides guidance on how to stay informed and engaged.
