2017 National Firearms Amnesty

A National Firearms Amnesty will operate for a period of three (3) months, commencing 1 July to 30 September, 2017. This means any person, including licence holders, will have the ability to register or surrender unregistered firearms to a firearms dealer or police station without fear of prosecution. Further, during the firearms amnesty the costs associated with registering a firearm will be waived, meaning, persons wishing to register unregistered firearms will not be charged any permit to acquire fee to register the unregistered firearm.

Cold Call Investment Fraud
Cold Call Investment Fraud (CCIF) relates to attempts by CCIF companies to defraud members of the public. Random or unexpected contact is usually made by a CCIF company via telephone to induce the caller into 'investing' in high return ventures. Once money is obtained by the CCIF company it is very difficult for the 'investor' to get their money back. More...

The Queensland Plan - A 30 year plan for Queensland
Queensland is a great state and our future is full of opportunity. We need to work together to make the most of these opportunities and define a long-term vision for Queensland. The Queensland Plan will outline our shared vision for the next 30 years and identify local and statewide priorities. It will harness the collective wisdom of Queenslanders and guide future activities delivered by all levels of government, business and the community.

Reports and Publications
The Queensland Police Service publish various reports and publications including the Annual Report, Statistical Review, Strategic Plan, Ministerial Reports and Statements, Police Bulletin, Corruption Prevention Plan and Simplification Plan.

Strategic Plans
The Strategic Plan outlines the direction for the Queensland Police Service and the strategies for delivering effective policing for Queensland. The QPS Strategic Plan 2017-2021 is effective 1 July 2017 and guides our direction for the next four years. It documents our organisational goals (vision and strategic objectives), how we intend to deliver them (strategies), and how we will assess our progress in delivering them (performance indicators). Within this four-year framework, we also identify the key strategic challenges and opportunities we're facing. This helps us to be flexible and assess and adjust our responses to a dynamic environment. It also ensures we are working toward common goals and guides decisio​ns around identifying and allocating resources. This process informs our annual QPS Operational Plan 2017-2018 which keeps our resources and actions aligned to the goals of the Strategic Plan. It does this by translating our strategic objectives into operational priorities, which are activities over and above business-as-usual responsibilities.​​​ 

QPS Operational Plan 2017-2018

The QPS 2017-2018 Operational Plan supports the Strategic Plan 2017–2021 and contributes to the Queensland Government objectives of delivering quality frontline services and building safe, caring and connected communities. This strategic plan contributes directly to these objectives and will be achieved within a framework of consultation, integrity and accountability.

Safe Night Out Strategy

The Queensland Government’s Safe Night Out Strategy (SNOS) incorporates a range of initiatives to address violence, anti-social behaviour and safety issues around licensed venues. In February 2014 more than 12,000 Queenslanders had their say on the issue of alcohol and drug-related violence in Queensland’s night spots. The views shared through the survey have informed the development of the Safe Night Out Strategy, a draft Action Plan to help ensure everyone can enjoy a safe night out.
