Notes:

1.    The performance measures associated with Fuel Reduction burns have been adjusted to provide more meaningful information of the number of burns conducted on private or public land.

2.    The performance measure ĎSatisfaction with police in dealing with public order problemsí has been removed as the data was removed from the National Survey of Community Satisfaction with Policing and has not been available from 2020‑21.

3.    Data for 2019‑20 has been adjusted to reflect final reported figures in the Departmentís 2020‑21 Annual Report.

4.    The 2019‑20 actuals have been updated based upon the Productivity Commissionís 2022 Report on Government Services.

5.    An offence is considered cleared if an offender has been identified and proceeded against by police or cannot be proceeded against and further investigation cannot be established or if the offence is withdrawn by the victim.

Output Group 2:††† Crime

Large Vessel Replacement Program

This initiative provides funding to enable the procurement of a fit‑for‑purpose offshore police patrol vessel to replace the PV Van Diemen, as part of the large vessel replacement program.

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.

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
