8†††† 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 Felix Ellis MP.

The TFS reports separately to the State Fire Commission for the purposes of financial reporting and the State Emergency Service Executive Director reports through the Chief Officer of the Tasmania Fire Service. The State Fire Commission and State Emergency Service initiatives are reflected within chapter 26 of this Budget Paper, State Fire Commission.

As part of the review of the Fire Service Act 1979, on 24 January 2023, the Government announced that the Tasmania Fire Service and the State Emergency Service will unite to form the Tasmania Fire and Emergency Service. To enable the new Service, the Government has announced that a new Fire and Emergency Services Act will be legislated in 2023.

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 Departmentís people, striving to implement innovative ideas and continually improving the Departmentís business.

The Department aims:

       to be a values‑based organisation;

       for the community to feel safe and be safe;

       to reduce crime;

       to improve driver behaviour through traffic law enforcement; and

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

This chapter provides the Departmentís financial information for 2023‑24 and over the Forward Estimates
(2024‑25 to 2026‑27). Further information about the Department is provided at www.dpfem.tas.gov.au.

Notes:

1.    This initiative will be delivered by the State Fire Commission. Refer to chapter 26 of this Budget Paper.

2.    This is additional funding to upgrade and maintain housing for police officers.

Body Worn Cameras, Interview and Cloud Services

Additional funding is provided for Body Worn Cameras and Interview and Cloud Services. Body worn cameras enhance the safety of police officers and provide a valuable evidentiary capability, with this initiative supporting the Governmentís commitment to increase police numbers. The interview and cloud service enables the community to share digital footage of an incident with Tasmania Police and is an integral part of the Governmentís road safety strategy.

Emergency Services Personnel and Volunteers Health and Wellbeing Program

This initiative continues initial funding provided in the 2021‑22 Budget to continue a proactive preventative program focused on improving the health and wellbeing of Tasmaniaís emergency services workforce. This initiative is critical to the health and wellbeing of workers and volunteers and, ultimately, the health and efficiency of the Department of Police, Fire and Emergency Management and Ambulance Tasmania.

Kentish and Latrobe Flood Mitigation

This initiative provides additional funding to progress flood mitigation works in the Kentish and Latrobe municipalities to support the ongoing implementation of the Governmentís response to the Report of the Independent Review into the Tasmanian Floods of June and July 2016.

Police Academy Capacity Upgrades

This initiative provides funding for upgrades to the Tasmania Police Academy, including upgrades to the auditorium, repairs to the water mains, commissioning and installation of a new electrical switchboard and replacement of the roofing. These works will ensure that the Academy remains fit for purpose and can continue to accommodate increased numbers of recruits and other police officers participating in promotion processes, professional development and specialist training.

Sex Offender Compliance and Investigation Response

This initiative will provide funding to enhance the management of the Community Protection Offender Register through an increased compliance capability for registered offenders.

Sex Offender Disclosure Program

This initiative establishes a Reportable Offender Disclosure scheme. Under this scheme, parents and guardians will be able to make an application to obtain information about a specific person who has regular, unsupervised access to their children.

State Control Centre/State Operations Centre

This initiative provides funding for the ongoing operational costs of the purpose‑built State Operations Centre. The State Operations Centre provides crisis coordination and emergency management in Tasmania.

Support for Injured Workers

This initiative provides additional funding to support police officers and State Service employees who have a workersí compensation claim. This funding will assist to meet increased workersí compensation costs and ensure employees get the appropriate support they need.

Upgrade Police Housing

Additional funding has been provided to continue refurbishing residential housing for police officers and their families stationed in remote and regional areas of Tasmania.

Notes:

1.    The variation in Support to the Community primarily reflects the funding profiles for 2023‑24 and prior year Budget initiatives.

2.    The increase in State Emergency Services in 2023-24 primarily reflects an increase in expenditure estimates for the State Fire Commission. The variation over the Forward Estimates primarily reflects the revised profile of Australian Government National Partnership Payment expenditure including the Disaster Risk Reduction NPP.

Notes:

1.    The variation in Appropriation revenue ‑ operating primarily reflects the profile of additional funding for 2023‑24 and prior year Budget initiatives. The increase in 2026‑27 also reflects additional appropriation for expenditure associated with the 27th pay occurring in that financial year.

2.    The increase in Grants in 2023‑24 reflects the profile of revenue in accordance with National Partnerships with the Australian Government and initiatives funded through Finance‑Generalís Digital Transformation Priority Expenditure Program and Structured Infrastructure Investment Review Process.

3.    The increase in Other revenue from 2023‑24 primarily reflects revised receipt and expenditure estimates for the State Fire Commission.

4.    The variation in Depreciation and amortisation reflects an adjustment to the Departmentís lease related costs in accordance with AASB 16 Leases.

5.    The increase in Grants and subsidies in 2023‑24 reflects the profile of expenditure associated with National Partnership Payments, as well as the Kentish and Latrobe Flood Mitigation and Supporting our Emergency Services Volunteers ‑ Capital Program Boost initiatives.

6.    The increase in Other expenses in 2023-24 reflects an increase in expenditure estimates for the State Fire Commission and expenditure associated with the Support for Injured Workers initiative.

7.    The variation in Changes in physical asset revaluation reserve reflects the revaluation of the Departmentís land and building portfolio in 2021-22.

Notes:

1.    The variation in this item in 2024 reflects revised estimates based on 30 June 2022 actuals.

2.    The variation in Property, plant and equipment, Infrastructure and Intangibles reflects the timing of infrastructure investment as part of the Departmentís Capital Investment Program and the revaluation of the Departmentís land and building portfolio in 2021‑22.

3.    The decrease in Employee benefits in 2027 recognises the payment of the 27th pay in 2026‑27 and the reduction in the associated liability accrued over prior years for this purpose.
