Police Specialist Response Group launched

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) will today launch its new Specialist Response Group (SRG), which will be the largest centralised specialist policing capability of its kind in Australia.

The SRG is a Canberra-based amalgamation of the AFP’s ACT Policing Specialist Response and Security (SRS) Team and the nationally and internationally focused Operational Response Group (ORG).

The new specialist capability became effective on 1 July 2012 and will have a wide range of capabilities including public order management, search and rescue, disaster response, intelligence, police negotiation, canine, bomb appraisal, water operations and tactical operations.

AFP Commissioner Tony Negus said the SRG will provide the AFP with a ‘one-stop shop’ of specialist functions.

“The creation of the SRG will provide an enhanced operational model for all AFP business and provide a more effective capability to meet AFP operational responses locally, nationally and internationally,” Commissioner Negus said.

“The establishment of the SRG will deliver better operational outcomes which in turn will benefit the community.”

The SRG will be officially launched at the AFP’s International Deployment Group (IDG) facility at Majura today (5 July 2012).

During the event, the SRG will showcase its capability through a demonstration involving an advanced driving display, a public order situation, a negotiator response and a tactical resolution to a hypothetical scenario.

What a load of bullsh!t. Who proof-reads this garbage? I noticed the word capability appears five times, with two of those in the same sentence. Dropping meaningless buzz words much?

They’ve confused themselves: they’re trying to re-purpose the word “capability” to serve as a substitute for the word “resource” or simply “unit”, but then they’ve continued to (over-)use the word “capability” in its genuine meaning as well, giving them a pretty poor piece peppered with “capabilities” alternately used and mis-used.

This should tell us that the usual illiterate bogan who writes these things has been bypassed and that this is the work of a PR firm or management consultancy.

Among the members of this team is an ex TAG east specialist. Don’t come any more trained. Safe hands here.

Ummm, is that some sort of police outfit? Or a paintball team?

Tactical Assault Group – the domestic counter terrorism and interdiction capability of the ADF comprising elements from the SAS, Commandos and the Navy.
