(2) The Australian Federal Police have advised that whilst it would be possible to obtain an answer to the question in theory, in practice it would be far too labour intensive (months of work manually searching through computer records) as they are unable to readily access such specific information. As such I am not prepared to authorise the resources required to obtain this information.

(3) Security guards are not currently deployed in the ACT to specifically protect mobile speed-camera operations. Since March 2004 the evening mobile camera service has been contracted to Chubb Security. Chubb has established its own arrangements for the security and protection of its employees and Territory assets. These arrangements include support from roving security patrols.

(4) The TCO have attended a number of community-based events such as the National Science Festival, various car shows and engaged in radio interviews in an attempt to promote the road safety component of their work.
