Review of the Terrorism (Preventative Detention) Act 2005

The Terrorism (Preventative Detention) Act 2005 (TPDA) is being reviewed to determine the need for and effectiveness of this legislation.

The TPDA was introduced in 2005 to give effect in Queensland to a Council of Australian Governments (COAG) agreement for the states and territories to introduce anti-terrorism legislation providing for non-investigative preventative detention orders.

The TPDA (section 83A) requires the Police Minister to review the need for and effectiveness of the TPDA, and table a report in Parliament by 19 November 2018.

In March 2017, the Minister gave his approval for the review to be conducted by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC). The CCC will provide a report to the Minister in September 2018.

Call for public submissions

During March 2018, the CCC invited stakeholders and members of the public to contribute to the review by way of written submissions.

The public submissions process is now closed.

The CCC has received ten submissions. All public submissions have been edited to remove material not considered appropriate for publication. This was done having regard to the criteria for handling submissions set out in the public submissions paper.
