The new center will help to protect citizens from terrorist and cyber threats, according to an Australian police official.
“We are involved in anti-terror operations, so we are establishing this to protect our citizens from terror and cyber crimes,” said Australian Federal Police Commissioner Tony Negus, who opened the Indian office.
The police center will work with Indian police officials to combat terrorism and crime targeting Australian and Indian nationals, according to Negus.
“As regional partners, Australia and India face common threats related to transitional crime, including drugs, human trafficking, terrorism and cyber crime,” he said.
“Discussions with Indian authorities have been highly productive and we look forward to strengthening the India-Australia law enforcement relationship.”
