Electoral information for candidates, as explained by AEC staff
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) have established an Incident Coordination Centre (ICC) to manage the protective security arrangements required to ensure a safe and secure 2022 federal election. One way in which the AFP can maintain a level of confidence around the security advice we provide is through maintaining situational awareness across all aspects of the election. To achieve this, it is important that you notify the ICC of any (election related) incidents or concerns that relate to your protective security during the election period. This will ensure the AFP is aware of election related incidents, and will better support the AFP’s provision of additional advice or assistance as required. The ICC will operate 24 hours day/7 days a week and is contactable via e-mail at Op-Phonix-ICC@afp.gov.au
In the event of an emergency or life threatening event, you should contact 000. For non-urgent local police attendance, please contact 131 444.
