Queensland Police Service LGBTI Program and Liaison Officers
The QPS initiated a LGBTI project in 1997 at a metropolitan level. In 2001 the QPS expanded this Program state wide. Police and staff member liaison officers have been trained to assist LGBTI communities. This role is voluntary and performed in conjunction with their normal roles and responsibilities. The purpose of this program is to provide a professional, non-discriminatory, accessible policing service to members of the LGBTI communities.
An up-to-date state wide contact list for police liaison officers can be found on the QPS internet site http://www.police.qld.gov.au/programs/community/lgbti/ under “Contact Officers”. This network provides an important link between the QPS and the LGBTI communities.
The State Coordinator of this program is located at the QPS Community Safety & Crime Prevention Branch and can be contacted on 07 3234 2111 (office hours).
If the matter is life threatening or an emergency please call 000.
