ADF counter-terrorism training in Perth in June 2019

Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel will conduct counter-terrorism training in the greater Perth metropolitan area of Western Australia throughout June 2019.

The training will be conducted during the day and night and involves responses to simulated terrorist scenarios at Defence sites, civilian transport hubs and other venues.

West Australian police and civilian authorities are aware of the training.  

The public should not be alarmed if they see or hear military helicopters, watercraft, vehicles, unmanned aerial surveillance systems, and military personnel carrying weapons.

Noise disturbances are minimised by the choice of flying routes, boat transits and activity locations, wherever possible.

People who see the training should not be concerned that any of the locations are under any form of actual threat.

Training such as this helps ensure Australia maintains its world-class counter-terrorism response capabilities.

The ADF is unable to provide media access or further information, including specific timings, regarding this training in order to protect operational tactics, techniques and procedures.
