Reports on Counter-Terrorism Powers

On 1 October 2018, amendments to the Terrorism (Community Protection) Act 2003 (TCPA) came into effect which permit Victoria Police to exercise certain exceptional powers for the purpose of preventing or responding to acts of terrorism.

The TCPA assigns an inspections role to the VI for the purpose of providing independent oversight of the use of these counter-terrorism powers.
