Combatting terrorism (Nationals)

By The Nationals

Abstract

This investment is improving our intelligence capability and strengthening our border security against terrorism, crime and other threats, originating both here and overseas. To keep Australians safe, the Government has also established: The National Disruption Group – bringing together Federal agencies and state and territory police to coordinate counter-terrorism disruption operations; An AFP Online Targeting Team to identify perpetrators online and collect evidence; Australian Border Force Counter-Terrorism Units at all eight Australian international airports and fast-tracked biometric screening; and The Foreign Fighters Task Force which is using its unique coercive powers and wealth of criminal intelligence to uncover terrorist networks. AUSTRAC is now using advanced data analytics to detect and act against terrorism financing risks. The Government is increasing its investment in Countering Violent Extremism programs, to protect young people from the risk of online engagement with violent extremists. We are also contributing to the global fight against terrorism, through Australia’s military operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria
