Security services for the Parliament Buildings and precinct grounds are provided 24 hours a day by Legislative Assembly Protective Services (LAPS). LAPS is also responsible for advising and assisting with security matters concerning constituency offices. All Assembly employees should familiarize themselves with emergency procedures in order to ensure their own safety and the safety of others in an emergency. In the event of a security incident or emergency situation, follow the direction of Legislative Assembly Protective Services or designated emergency wardens.

To report a matter of personal or public safety, or if you observe any suspicious activity, please contact Legislative Assembly Protective Services.
