The State government agency Tasmania Police is directed by a Commissioner of Police who is also the Secretary of the Department of Police and Public Safety and answerable to that Minister.

The State Emergency Service (SES) is part of the Department and operates under provisions of the Emergency Service Act 1976. The SES is responsible for the adequate preparedness of Tasmania in the event of an emergency or act of aggression (civil defence).

The vision of Tasmania Police is to be widely recognised as a premier police organisation. Its mission is to ensure that Tasmania is the safest State in the nation.

POLICE STRUCTURE

At 30 June 2003, Tasmania’s police service consisted of 1,117 officers supported by 380 State Service personnel.
