States and territories

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​State and territory governments are responsible for responding to threats in their jurisdiction. Each government has different emergency and counter-terrorism plans.

They all have a responsibility to:

  • maintain policies and plans
  • manage counter-terrorism agencies
  • work with the federal government on national terrorist situations
  • contribute to the national response​.
