The NSW Government has developed an unclassified and publicly available Counter Terrorism Plan to inform the general public, business and government about the responsibilities, authorities and mechanisms in place to prepare, prevent, respond to and recover from acts of terrorism within NSW.
The plan details:
- counter terrorism arrangements within NSW
- roles and responsibilities of NSW agencies to counter terrorism in regards to
- response and
- NSW administrative arrangements
The NSW Counter Terrorism Plan incorporates existing NSW State Emergency Management Plan arrangements and complements the National Counter Terrorism Plan. Comprehensive information on the national arrangements is described in the National Counter Terrorism Plan.
This plan is maintained by the Cabinet Standing Committee on Counter Terrorism and Emergency Management.
