Police Minister Jack Dempsey says locals who do not pass criminal history checks will be denied access to restricted zones and alternative accommodation will be provided at the cost of a few hundred dollars. “If there are people who the authorities think will put the operation at risk, those people will be advised they will not be able to go into those restricted areas,” he said.

The legislation declares special security areas in the two cities, gives police extra search and arrest powers, and creates offences for actions such as crossing barriers and disrupting meetings.

Police Minister Jack Dempsey says locals who do not pass criminal history checks will be denied access to restricted zones and alternative accommodation will be provided at the cost of a few hundred dollars.

“If there are people who the authorities think will put the operation at risk, those people will be advised they will not be able to go into those restricted areas,” he said.

“We envisage that the majority of Queenslanders would be able to pass the federal categorization of people not being allowed to go into those areas, so we’re expecting 99 per cent of people being able to go freely once they’ve had their criminal history checks and balances in place.”
