    • received 43 complaints relating to elected officials, 107 relating to excessive use of force and 157 relating to the misuse of information
    • finalised six investigations related to elected officials and three in relation to improper release of confidential information
    • conducted an investigation in relation to excessive use of force which led to one charge of common assaulted against Corrections Officer and conducted an investigation concerning misuse of the Queensland Corrective Services data management system which led to the charging of a Custodial Corrections Officer with 69 counts of computer hacking
