Dress of the Day

Commissioned Officers: Cap, tie and medalsPolice Officers: Summer uniform with cap (not baseball style), tie and medalsMale Officers: Long trousers (no shorts)Female Officers: Skirts or culottes with stockings or long trousers (no shorts)Staff Members or Civilian Guests: Business attire with medalsDefence Force Members: Ceremonial (less sword)  

Lowering of Flags

Flags at police establishments should be flown at the half-mast position as a sign of mourning until noon, then at full-mast to sunset. The flag is brought to the half-mast position by first raising it to the masthead and then immediately lowering it slowly to the half-mast position.  The flag should be raised again to the top before being lowered for the day.

The position of the flag when flying at half-mast will depend on the size of the flag and the length of the flagpole.

It is essential that it be lowered at least to a position recognizably “half-mast” so as to avoid the appearance of a flag which has accidentally fallen away from the mast-head owing to a loose halyard.

A satisfactory position for half-masting would normally be when the top of the flag is one-third of the distance down from the top of the mast.

Remembrance Day Blue Ribbons

Each year the Queensland Police Service provides all staff with satin blue and white chequered ribbons to be worn as a symbol of remembrance for all those officers who have been killed on duty.

The ribbon should be worn on the right hand side directly above the name tag.
