Every day the Queensland Police Service, your police service, works tirelessly to ensure the safety and security of the community.
Police officers around the state show courage and dedication in exercising their duties.
We don’t seek credit for this work. It is our job.
We only ask that the community joins with us to stop crime, make the community safer and build relationships.
It is pleasing that in many areas this is happening on a daily basis.
As with any large organisation, there are plenty of people who support us and others who do not always agree with everything we do.
I ask that the community make up their own minds.
In addition to the traditional methods of sharing details about our organisation and its work a large amount of our information is now available at your fingertips.
The myPolice website has grown to fifteen blogs throughout the state which contain regular updates from local police about matters of interest to the community. More myPolice blogs will go online in the coming months.
Online crime maps and statistics are now available in great detail on the QPS Crime Map. One aim is for users to become familiar with their area and engage in appropriate crime prevention strategies, partnering with police to ensure a safer community.
I am immensely proud of the work the men and women of the QPS do, and of the support we receive from the general community and other important stakeholders.
The QPS is an organisation focused on improvement and review, and we will continue to strive to provide the best possible policing service to you all, everyday.
