Certain Court proceedings require a witness (or person being summoned to produce records) to be paid what is known as conduct money. Conduct money can be payable even if the witness (e.g. the Commissioner) is only producing records and is not physically required to attend Court to give evidence.
Currently the conduct money payable is $78.90 (as of 1/7/2017). This is in accordance with Section 419(1) of Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 1999 and rule 16 of the Uniform Civil Procedure (Fees) Regulation 2009 or other relevant jurisdiction.
Payment can be made by cheque or money order payable to the Queensland Police Service.
You may wish to telephone this office to check if conduct money is payable for your particular type of Court hearing.
In some cases you may be required to pay travel and accommodation expenses for individuals who are required to attend court as witnesses.
