This initiative provides additional funding to the Health and Wellbeing program. This will deliver additional services, such as psychologists to ensure emergency service personnel and volunteers receive the support they require.

Increase in Police Numbers

This initiative will deliver an additional 50 police officers commencing from 202223 to bolster frontline services and deliver a greater focus on criminal investigation capability.

More Support for Police

This initiative will enable more support to Police by employing State Service employees in specialised roles, such as prosecution, cybercrime and digital evidence analysis.

Notes:

1.    The increase in Support to the Community in 2021‑22 reflects the expense component of funding transferred for the Tasmanian Government Radio Network to the Department from Finance‑General, and additional funding for new initiatives.

2.    The decrease in State Security and Rescue Operations in 2021‑22 is due to a one‑off payment in 2020‑21 for additional Emergency Alert Stage 4 expenditure.

3.    The decrease in the Public Building Maintenance Program reflects the completion of maintenance and upgrades to Police Stations funded through the Program.

4.    The decrease in the Capital Investment program in 2021‑22 reflects the completion of the Body Worn Video initiative. The increase in 2023‑24 reflects new funding for the Volunteer Brigade Equipment Upgrades and the Fire and Emergency Services Volunteer Grants Program.


 

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.

This initiative provides for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones) with latest technology to be made available to Tasmania Police, along with training for police officers statewide.

Launceston Police Station Refurbishment

This initiative provides for the refurbishment of the Launceston Police Station. The refurbishment will provide police officers and the community with modern, fit‑for‑purpose premises well into the future.

Longford Police Station

The population of Longford and surrounding areas is growing and having a secure, well‑equipped and modern station is important for the local community. This initiative provides for a new station that will provide contemporary accommodation from which to conduct policing activities.

New Norfolk Police Station

This initiative will build a contemporary station to provide an enhanced police presence in the New Norfolk area. This investment will ensure that the new station has the capacity, space and security requirements to respond to the community’s needs.

Police Infrastructure

As part of the Government’s commitment to a full‑time core Special Operations Group and an enhanced rapid response capability, a one‑off capital allocation has been provided to enable a secure, fit‑for‑purpose facility.

Project Unify

This initiative continues Project Unify, which will upgrade a number of disparate, disconnected and ageing ICT systems that support policing operations and external clients.

Sorell Emergency Services Hub

The Government has allocated funding to build a new Emergency Services Hub at Sorell. This brand new greenfield facility will house emergency personnel in a modern and well‑equipped hub. The hub will be particularly important in helping to build a positive working relationship between emergency personnel and the community they serve.


 

Supporting our Emergency Services Volunteers

The State Fire Commission will continue the implementation of a four year initiative to enable all Volunteer Units from the Tasmania Fire Service and State Emergency Service to apply for upgrades to equipment. This initiative is funded by an allocation provided in 2018‑19 over four years.

Upgrade Police Housing

This initiative supports a significant program of refurbishing residential housing for police officers and their families stationed in remote and regional areas of Tasmania. This initiative will ensure that the housing is of good condition and will provide a significant economic stimulus to a number of regional Tasmanian communities.

Notes:

1.    The increase in Appropriation revenue ‑ operating in 2021‑22 primarily reflects the transfer of expenditure for TasGRN from Finance‑General, and additional funding for new initiatives.

2.    The decrease in Grants from 2021‑22 reflects that the Department will receive funding for TasGRN through Appropriation revenue ‑ operating rather than by grant funding from Finance‑General.

3.    The increase in Employee benefits reflects additional funding for the Superannuation Guarantee Contribution, and the COVID‑19 Coordination Centre, Country Police Station Relief Policy and Increase to Police Numbers initiatives.

4.    The increase in Supplies and consumables in 2022‑23 reflects expenditure associated with the TasGRN.

5.    The variation in Grants and subsidies reflects the timing of funding for 2021 election commitments.

6.    The variation in Changes in physical asset revaluation reserve in 2021‑22 to 2022‑23 reflects revised estimates based on 30 June 2020 actuals.

Notes:

1.    The increase in Support to the Community in 2021‑22 reflects the transfer of expenditure for TasGRN from Finance‑General, and additional funding for new initiatives.

2.    The increase in State Emergency Services in 2021‑22 reflects funding for the 2020‑21 Budget initiative: SES Community Protection Planning for Flood and Storm Hazard.

3.    The decrease in State Security and Rescue Operations in 2021‑22 is due to a one‑off payment in 2020‑21 for additional Emergency Alert Stage 4 expenditure.

4.    The variation in Capital Services reflects the funding for the Capital Investment Program, which varies significantly from year to year due to the cash flow requirements of specific projects.
