Changes to Defence Protective Security Alert

As a precaution, and consistent with the change of the National Terrorism Public Alert Level to HIGH following advice from the Director General ASIO, Defence has raised the security alert level at bases and establishments across Defence.

Defence’s protective security system caters for the unique arrangements required by Defence and operates separately from the public alert system. This system offers a graduated scale of security options to allow Defence to respond appropriately to changes in the threat environment.

Defence has provided advice to our members and their families regarding these changes and the likely impacts on them, however further details regarding specific security measures and where they have been applied will not be released.
