“Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland and Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) Director-General David Irvine have opened the Australian Counter Terrorism Control Centre (CTCC) in Canberra.

The CTCC will play a lead role in strengthening the coordination of Australia’s counter-terrorism intelligence efforts, by setting and managing counter-terrorism priorities, identifying intelligence requirements and ensuring that the process of collecting and distributing intelligence is fully harmonised.

It will also support the established roles of Federal and state law enforcement authorities.”
