What is the Right to Information?
The Right to Information aims to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy. Further information about Whole of Government policy and the relevant legislation is available from www.rti.qld.gov.au.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RIGHT TO INFORMATION APPLICATIONS:
The Queensland Police Service (QPS) Right to Information and Privacy Group is currently in the process of transitioning to the newly established Public Safety Business Agency (PSBA). The PSBA is a Queensland Government entity established as a result of the recommendations of the Police and Community Safety Review (PACSR). PSBA will provide corporate services support to the QPS and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES). It is anticipated this process will be completed in the near future.
As a result of this transition, all RTI and IPA applications for QFES are to be referred on to the QPS Right to Information and Privacy Group. For further information or enquires, please contact our Unit on (07) 3364 4666 or email e-RTI@police.qld.gov.au. Should you wish to make an RTI or IPA application, please go to Apply for Information.
