Today’s police operation shows that in this era we need to be constantly vigilant about public safety.
I congratulate the hardworking women and men of Victoria Police and federal law enforcement on their actions to intercept a probable terrorist attack.
At this time of Christmas, it is a reminder that our emergency services continue their tireless efforts to keep us safe.
We as a community need to always be aware that there are people who aim to attack our way of life particularly on days of national and religious significance.
Extremism simply has no place in our society
