Terms of Reference:The Community Development and Justice Standing Committee will inquire into and report on the protection of crowded places in Western Australia from terrorist acts. In particular, the Committee will consider the Parliament of Western Australia’s role in overseeing counter-terrorism arrangements in Western Australia to ensure that it can properly evaluate the:

1. state-based emergency management framework;

2. implementation of mitigation and protective security measures;

3. relationships between state government departments and agencies and owners and operators of crowded places;

4. capability of the Western Australia Police Force to respond to a terrorist attack on a crowded place; and

5. security licensing, registration, and assurance processes in Western Australia.

In doing so, the Committee will have regard for the flow of information between agencies and other relevant stakeholders.
