Navigation

This website contains various types of navigation which you can use to move through the site.

Utility navigation

The first level of navigation for all pages on this site is the utility navigation at the top of each page.

From here you can link to:

  • Home - the Queensland Police Service home page
  • Contact us - contact information for the Queensland Police Service
  • Help - tips on using this website. You are here.
  • Sitemap - an index of the pages within our site
  • Search - enter keywords in the box to search for information on this website.

Primary navigation

The next level of navigation is the primary navigation, which is directly under the horizontal image banner on each page.

Each section contains related information.  To view the contents of a section, move your mouse over the link to view a list of topics and select the topic you require.

Secondary navigation

If a lot of information is contained within a section of the site, secondary navigation will be introduced.  This secondary navigation will be specific to each section on the site, and will be found in the left-hand column of a page.

Open and close the menus by selecting the [+] or [-] symbol to the left of each menu item where available.

Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs offer further help with navigation. They show the shortest path from our homepage to the page you are currently at. Breadcrumbs allow you to link to any page along that path. The page you are on, however, will not be linked.

Footer

From the footer you can link to our legal notices and information on the access keys used on this site. A link is also provided to the Queensland Government website, the main government site that provides access to Queensland Government information and services online.

Access keys

Access keys have been included to assist users with disabilities to access certain information using only the keyboard.  Also known as keyboard shortcuts, they allow you to move quickly to sections and links on a page without the need for a mouse.  Find out what access keys are used on this site.

Skip links

If you are using an assistive technology such as a screen reader to browse this site, skip links are provided at the beginning of the page to allow you to move quickly to key information such as the primary navigation, secondary navigation or content. The links are not visible in a graphical browser.

Logical tab order

This website has a logical tab order for navigating without a mouse. Use the tab key on your keyboard to move to the next link or field.  Use shift-tab to move backwards, and the enter key to follow links and submit forms.  Most browsers support these functions.
