​Call ​the National Security Hotline: 1800 123 400​


A new phase of the National Security Campaign, ‘If it doesn’t add up, speak up’, was recently  launched on television and radio reminding us that everyone can help keep Australia safe by calling the National Security Hotline on 1800 123 400.

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness among all communities of the need to be vigilant, to note suspicious activity, and to report it to the National Security Hotline. Calls to the Hotline have already contributed to investigations and initiated new ones.

The public plays a major role in providing information to law enforcement and intelligence agencies charged with protecting the community and it is important that we keep that information flowing.

The nature of terrorism is changing, with callers providing information on the use of websites or social media platforms promoting violent extremist ideology, suspicious travel planning, and reports from people concerned that someone they know is becoming radicalised towards violent extremism.

A second burst of advertising will commence in late May, including further television and radio, digital, print and outdoor media channels.

The campaign has also translated print, digital and radio advertisements into languages including: Arabic, Bahasa, Bengali, Dari, Farsi, Hindi, Sinhalese, Somali, Tamil, Turkish and Urdu.

The Government is working with all communities in the fight against terrorism.

Even if you think it’s probably nothing, the smallest piece of information can be valuable.

The National Security Hotline can be contacted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 1800 123 400.
