Police Tactical Group (PTG) is a highly trained Australian police tactical unit that responds to and resolves high-risk incidents, including terrorist incidents. Police Tactical Groups are fundamental to the Federal government's National Counter-Terrorism Plan (NCTP) to respond to major terrorist incidents in Australia. The Plan initially developed in 1980, then known as the National Anti-Terrorism Plan, is overseen by the Australia-New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee (ANZCTC). The Plan requires each state and territory police to maintain a police tactical unit designated as a Police Tactical Group (previously Police Assault Group) which is jointly funded by the federal government and the respective state or territory government.The Australia-New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee (ANZCTC) defines a Police Tactical Group as a highly trained police unit that tactically manages and resolves high-risk incidents, including terrorist incidents.Generally, the majority of a Police Tactical Group's planned operations and call-outs, are not counter-terrorism related, responding in their state or territory to high-risk incidents such as sieges or executing high-risk search warrants, which are beyond the scope and capability of other police units.
