7 Department of Police, Fire and Emergency Management

Agency Outline

The Department of Police, Fire and Emergency Management is responsible for the delivery of quality policing, fire and emergency management services in Tasmania. Comprised of Tasmania Police, the Tasmania Fire Service, the State Emergency Service, Forensic Science Service Tasmania and Business and Executive Services, the Department is responsible to the Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Management, Hon Rene Hidding MP.

The Tasmania Fire Service reports separately to the State Fire Commission for the purposes of financial reporting. Under new governance arrangements, the State Emergency Service (SES) Director now reports through the Chief Officer of the Tasmania Fire Service and SES is incorporated within chapter 24 of this Budget Paper.

The Department is committed to providing a safe, secure and resilient Tasmania and building individual and organisational capacity in order to provide high quality services to the Tasmanian community. This capacity will be built by continuing to value the Department's people, striving to implement innovative ideas and continually improving the Department's business.

The Department aims:

       to be a values‑based organisation, which embraces the values of integrity, equity and accountability;

       for the community to feel safe and be safe;

       to reduce crime;

       to improve driver behaviour through traffic law enforcement; and

       to contribute towards community resilience through effective security and emergency management.

This chapter provides the Department's financial information for 2016‑17 and over the Forward Estimates period (2017‑18 to 2019‑20) and the performance targets the Department aims to achieve. Further information on the Department is provided at www.dpem.tas.gov.au.

District Headquarters and Major Support Service Building Refurbishment

This funding is to maintain major police facilities across the State such as the Tasmania Police Academy, District headquarters and Support Services buildings. All buildings are due for major works to ensure they continue to meet the needs of the Tasmanian community, are safe, functional and can meet the Government's policy objectives.

Emergency Alert

This funding is provided to assist in the provision of an emergency warning system, as agreed to by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2009. Emergency Alert is the national telephone warning system used by emergency management agencies. The system sends voice messages to landlines and text messages to mobile phones within a defined area, about likely or actual emergencies such as fire, flood, acts of terrorism or extreme weather events.

Emergency Services Computer Aided Dispatch (ESCAD) System

This Project will address the replacement of the three computer aided dispatch systems currently in operation within Tasmania Police, Tasmania Fire Service and Ambulance Tasmania, with a combined emergency services computer aided dispatch system. This will enhance the responsiveness of emergency services to the full range of emergency events and provide for more efficient inter‑agency operations and realisation of efficiencies through economies of scale. An additional $2 million has been provided for this project in this Budget.


 

Fuel Reduction Program

The Fuel Reduction Program is a statewide, 'tenure blind' risk based program of burns to reduce fuel in the areas that pose the greatest risk to the Tasmanian community, conducted on reserved and private land. Funding has been transferred from the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment to the Department of Police, Fire and Emergency Management from 2016‑17 as the Fuel Reduction Unit resides within the Tasmania Fire Service. This transfer will result in a more efficient funding basis for fuel reduction activities. The program is funded until 2017‑18 and the program will be reviewed during 2016‑17 with ongoing funding to be considered in the context of future budgets.

Large Vessel Replacement

This initiative is part of a progressive and ongoing procurement program to ensure that vessels are replaced at regular intervals and to ensure that they are fit for purpose. The funding provided reflects the procurement of a second vessel capable of deploying out to 200 nautical miles in a range of circumstances and weather conditions.

Rebuilding the Police Service

This 2014 election commitment provided ongoing funding to rebuild the police service through the employment of an extra 108 officers, enhancing the public order response capability and establishing a Serious Organised Crime Unit, which includes a cold case capability.

State Emergency Service Transition to the Tasmania Fire Service

Funding for two years will be provided to assist in the transition of the State Emergency Service (SES) to the State Fire Commission whilst sustainable funding options are developed. Management arrangements were revised in 2014‑15 and the SES Director now reports through the Chief Officer of the Tasmania Fire Service.

Upgrade Police Housing ‑ Statewide

This funding is provided to refurbish residential housing for police officers and their families stationed in remote and regional areas of Tasmania. The majority of the housing stock is in excess of 35 years old, and in varying states of condition. This funding will ensure that the housing is of good condition, fit for purpose and that officers and their families will continue to take up residence in remote locations.

Upgrade Police Housing on the West Coast

This is the second of a two‑year initiative that provides funding to assist the Department in implementing a structured program to address police housing issues primarily on the West Coast. This infrastructure investment supports the Government's policy priority of Rebuilding the Police Service by providing improved facilities to support officers engaged in remote area policing.

Notes:

1.   The increases in Support to the Community, Investigation of Crime and Traffic Policing in 2016‑17 and over the Forward Estimates reflect the election commitment Rebuilding the Police Service.

2.   The increases in Support to the Community in 2016‑17 and 2017‑18 reflect the transfer of the Fuel Reduction Program from the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment. Funding will be provided for two years and will be reviewed in 2016‑17 with ongoing funding to be considered in the context of future budgets.

3.   The decrease in 2016‑17 and subsequent increase in 2017‑18 in Poppy Security reflects a realignment with actual expenditure trends.

4.   The variation in the State Emergency Management Services Output reflects the funding cycle associated with the Australian Government for National Partnership Payments ‑ Disaster Resilience, and the cessation in 2018‑19 of the additional two years of funding to transition the State Emergency Service to the Tasmania Fire Service, at which time a longer term sustainable funding model is expected to be in place.

Output Group 1: Public Safety

1.1 Support to the Community

This Output relates to personal safety in the community, maintaining public order and the provision of safety initiatives that assist in developing safe, secure and resilient communities. Through the provision of high‑visibility targeted patrols and the establishment of partnerships with community organisations, the Department aims to ensure that the public has confidence and satisfaction in the services provided.

Services provided under this Output Group and Output Group 2 include the Department's response to the important issue of family violence and includes significant support provided to a number of other Departments in the provision of their important services.

Output Group 2: Crime

2.1 Investigation of Crime

This Output relates to the detection and apprehension of offenders, including investigation of serious and organised crime. Through crime detection strategies and legislative reform, the Department aims to reduce the number of offences committed against both people and property.

2.2 Poppy Security

This Output focuses on the protection and security of poppy crops, the prevention of poppy crop interferences and the targeting of offenders through investigative techniques. The involvement of industry groups in the protection and security of poppies contributes to the reduction in the number of poppy diversions onto the illicit market.

2.3 Fisheries Security

This Output relates to marine safety and the protection of State and Australian Government marine resources, through the provision of marine compliance and enforcement activities. By using a combination of overt and covert sea patrols, in‑port, at sea and fish processor inspections, the Department is able to target offenders, facilitate the protection and security of marine resources in both the recreational and commercial fishing sectors and ensure the safety of vessel operators.

2.4 Support to Judicial Services

This Output relates to policing services that support the judicial system such as the prosecution of offenders, provision of diversionary programs, bail/warrant processing, victim support services and investigation, and clerical and investigation services on behalf of the coroner.

District Headquarters and Major Support Service Building Refurbishment

A total of $2 million over two years will maintain major police facilities across the State such as the Tasmania Police Academy, District headquarters and Support Services buildings. All buildings are due for major works to ensure they continue to meet the needs of the Tasmanian community, are safe, functional and can meet the Government's policy objectives.

Emergency Services Computer Aided Dispatch System

A total of $17.3 million, with remaining funding of $10.6 million to be provided over two years for this Project, will address the replacement of the three computer aided dispatch systems currently in operation within Tasmania Police, Tasmania Fire Service and Ambulance Tasmania, with a combined emergency services computer aided dispatch system. This will enhance the responsiveness of emergency services to the full range of emergency events and provide for more efficient inter‑agency operations and realisation of efficiencies through economies of scale.

Large Vessel Replacement

A total of $8.6 million, with remaining funding of $5.1 million to be provided in 2016‑17, is part of a progressive and ongoing procurement program to ensure that vessels are replaced at regular intervals and to ensure that they are fit for purpose. The funding provided reflects the procurement of a second vessel capable of deploying out to 200 nautical miles in a range of circumstances and weather conditions.

Upgrade Police Housing ‑ Statewide

A total of $5 million over four years will be provided to refurbish residential housing for police officers and their families stationed in remote and regional areas of Tasmania. The majority of the housing stock is in excess of 35 years old, and in varying states of condition. This funding will ensure that the housing is of good condition, fit for purpose and that officers and their families will continue to take up residence in remote locations.

Upgrade Police Housing on the West Coast

A total of $2 million, with remaining funding of $1 million to be provided in 2016‑17, to assist the Department in implementing a structured program to address police housing issues primarily on the West Coast. This infrastructure investment supports the Government's policy priority of Rebuilding the Police Service by providing improved facilities to support officers engaged in remote area policing.
