The demand on the Queensland Police Service continues to increase, with more diversified services placing additional stress on resources. These services include support for COVID-19, mental health, domestic violence, drugs, and incident response.

Population growth and major events such as the 2032 Brisbane Olympic and Paralympic Games will also continue to impact resources.

Over time, these factors can impact allowances and accrued leave, which effects how the police service deploys its resources.

Audit Objective

This audit will examine how efficiently and effectively the Queensland Police Service deploys its resources to maximise public safety and meet service demands within the community.
