Further call for submissions to Commission of Inquiry into Queensland Police Service (QPS) responses to domestic and family violence

At a hearing of the Commission of Inquiry on Thursday, 18 August 2022, Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll agreed that there are significant cultural issues, relating to sexism, misogyny and racism, within the QPS.

Following that evidence, the Commission of Inquiry has been contacted by a number of members of the QPS about those issues.

In light of these matters, the Commission of Inquiry is calling for further submissions from people who have knowledge of the cultural issues within the QPS.

The call for submissions will only be open for a short period. Submissions must be provided by 5pm, Monday 5 September 2022.

Submissions can be made confidentially.

Submissions can be emailed to enquiries@qpsdfvinquiry.qld.gov.au.

The Commission of Inquiry will hold a brief hearing this afternoon (Monday 22 August) at 2.15pm in Court 23 of the Brisbane Magistrates Court to advise of the new call for submissions. The hearing will be open to the public and will be livestreamed from the Commission’s website.
