If it doesn’t feel right, flag it

Sometimes, threats can be detected within our border. So if you see something suspicious—or something that just doesn't feel right—flag it anonymously with Border Watch and help us keep our community safe.

Industry program

Border Watch is dedicated to building strong partnerships underpinned by trust and confidence.

Key partners of the Border Watch program are industry members that are involved in the movement of goods and people across the Australian border. Industry members include customs brokers, freight forwarders, shipping companies, warehouses and depots, airlines and transport companies.

We encourage any company that operates in the international trade or transport sectors to join the Border Watch program.

Border Watch also values its partnerships with community groups and individuals who observe suspicious activities in their local environments. These groups include accommodation and tourism providers, coast guard volunteers, radio operators, 4WD clubs, marina operators and residents of coastal communities.

We encourage any individual or group that identifies suspicious border activity to make contact with the Border Watch program.

Border Watch members strive to:

  • provide timely information about any unusual or suspicious incidents of interest to us
  • work with us in the development of consultative and cooperative working arrangements
  • monitor and improve their internal security

In turn we agree to:

  • provide awareness sessions and advice on matters relating to security and drug interdiction
  • participate in and encourage the development of consultative and cooperative working arrangements

You can enquire using our Border Watch member enquiry form.

Border Watch member enquiries will be referred to a Border Watch coordinator in the appropriate region.
