Australia's Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism

25 Aug 2017

Australia's Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism,  released this week, will  assist facility owners and operators across the country, to increase safety, protection and resilience of crowded places.

The Strategy's 'how to guide' provides guidance on where owners and operators can go for threat information and protective security guidance and provides an overview of effective security practices.

Crowded places are sites and events open to use by large numbers of people on a predictable basis. They can be buildings or open spaces. A crowded place will not necessarily be crowded at all times as crowd densities may vary between day and night and may be temporary. Stadiums, shopping centres, pedestrian malls and major events can be crowded places.
