Queensland Police Service Responses to Domestic and Family Violence

The Commission of Inquiry into Queensland Police Service responses to domestic and family violence calls for submissions from members of the public, members of the Queensland Police Service, members of the Legal Profession, community and industry groups and academics in criminology and, or policing practices.

In summary, the Inquiry’s terms of reference are:

  • whether there are any cultural issues within the Queensland Police Service that negatively affect police investigations of DFV
  • if there are any cultural issues, whether they have contributed to the overrepresentation of First Nations people in the criminal justice system
  • the capability, capacity and structure of the Queensland Police Service to respond to DFV, and
  • the adequacy of the current conduct and complaints handling processes against police officers.

The Commission’s primary focus is on systemic matters affecting the capacity of the Queensland Police Service to respond to domestic and family violence and to make recommendations about how to address any issues identified in that examination. The Commission will not examine individual cases.

The Commission will look at relevant submissions previously made to the Women’s Safety and Justice Taskforce: Hear her voice Report One – Addressing coercive control and domestic and family violence in Queensland.
