Guided Self Assessment

The guided self-assessment is designed for owner operators of places of mass gathering and event organisers. The purpose of the assessment tool is to assist you in identifying the attractiveness of your location to a terrorist attack.

You will need to provide some personal details before accessing the questionnaire so that South Australia Police (SAPOL) can contact you to discuss the assessment of your event.

The self-assessment consists of a series of questions which will provide a score. This will determine whether your location has few, some or many of the characteristics that make your location attractive to a terrorist.

Once you have completed the self-assessment SAPOL will receive notification of your result and we will contact you to discuss your result. The information you provide in your form including contact and event details are delivered to SAPOL unencrypted. You may prefer to contact Critical Infrastructure Support Group using the contact details below.

If you have any questions about the self-assessment contact the Critical Infrastructure Support Group, phone 7322 3622 or email Sapol.sacis@police.sa.gov.au.
