Australia's Waterways Security to be Boosted

Monday, November 07, 2005
According to The Age, increased security patrols around Melbourne Port and a 24-hour control center for the Yarra River feature in security and operational plans for Melbourne's waterways during next year's Commonwealth Games. Details have emerged as the Federal Government begins its race against the clock to complete security checks on port workers and users who need access to secure areas during the Games. The issuing of 140,000 identification cards to maritime workers is one of the Government's key initiatives for national security, and is scheduled to be completed by January 2007. The port will continue operating during the Games, with security agencies planning patrols by water police. Special underwater capabilities and police divers will be available.
