The About Us section provides information on The Service including our organisational structure and functions, locations and contacts.

Client Service Charter
The purpose of a Client Service Charter is to provide a statement of what our clients can expect by way of services provided by the Queensland Police Service.  The Client Service Charter sets out the expectations of the Queensland Police Service in relation to its own performance and the expectations it has of the community.

How we make decisions
The QPS decision making processes are controlled within a corporate governance framework. This framework ensures the department achieves its strategic goals and operational objectives, monitors risk and optimises organisational performance. Our key elements common to good governance include accountability, transparency and openness and recognition of stakeholder rights.

Volunteers in Policing
Volunteers in Policing (ViPs) are based in local police establishments where they work with police to address customer service, community safety and crime prevention needs in the community. The range of tasks they undertake complement rather than compete with the roles and responsibilities of paid police officers and staff members.

The Queensland Police Service record of deceased officers is split into three separate lists including the Role of Honour, In Remembrance and those that have Died on Active Service.  All of the officers on these lists died while on duty between the years 1859 and 2011.

Facilities and Activities

Protective Services
Protective Services has provided protective security services to the people and property assets of the Queensland Government for more than 60 years.  It protects important government assets including schools, Queensland Cultural Centre, courthouses and government offices across the state.
