    Abstract

    Australia’s border security and national law enforcement arrangements comprise a complex framework of often overlapping jurisdictions; legacy policy issues and budgeting models; organisational cultural challenges; and stand-alone thematic strategies. In the past, expediency during policy development called for the establishment of ad hoc taskforce arrangements to temporarily address new or emerging issues. Despite these challenges, the border security and law enforcement agencies have consistently achieved or exceeded the performance targets in their Parliamentary Budget Statements. This isn’t surprising, given that they have historically been focused on achieving ‘siloed’ operational outcomes such as arrests, seizures and successful prosecutions. For any government, change in this policy space is tough going.
