Agency Performance

Court Security

The role of the Court Risk Assessment Directorate is to ensure the safe and secure operation of the State’s courts and tribunals by identifying and treating risks. The Directorate also has the lead role in co-ordinating security measures by service providers.

During the year a key priority included strengthening the security arrangements at courts and tribunals in response to an escalation to the National Public Terrorism Alert classification.

The Directorate operated in conjunction with federal, state and private sector providers to mitigate risk within, and adjacent to, court precincts without impacting upon the judicial process.

The Directorate was also instrumental in planning the architectural design and testing of the security framework at the new Fitzroy Crossing Courthouse and the recently commissioned David Malcolm Justice Centre which deliver an enhanced level of safety and security for all court users.
