The Queensland Police Service (QPS) is committed to ensuring policing services are accessible to all members of the community. Police work closely with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) communities to develop partnerships as well as an awareness and understanding of issues impacting on the community.
This program provides a professional, non-discriminatory, accessible policing service to members of the LGBTI communities.
This is achieved by:
- developing an awareness and understanding of LGBTI communities
- developing partnerships with LGBTI communities
- ensuring equality, accountability and professionalism in our contact with LGBTI communities
- improving service delivery to LGBTI communities.
As part of the LGBTI program, a number of police are dedicated LGBTI liaison officers. These officers are located throughout the state. They can provide support and assistance to LGBTI community members when dealing with police matters. It is important to note however, when initially reporting a crime or issue, it should be done with any officer at your local police station. If you require assistance from an LGBTI officer, please let the reporting officer know and they will endeavour to ensure an LGBTI officer contacts you.
To contact a LGBTI officer in your area, please call police link on 131444 or contact your local police station.
