Security won't be noticeable

Neither Royal Military College Duntroon nor the Australian Defence Force Academy will be visibly affected by a tightening up of security procedures at defence bases in the wake of the 2009 terrorist plot against the Holsworthy Army Barracks.

Vehicles and individuals entering the Holsworthy Army Barracks are subject to random searches.

While Defence would neither confirm nor deny whether the random searches would be introduced at Duntroon and ADFA for ''security reasons'', a spokesman indicated that there would be no discernible changes. David Ellery
