Public perceptions of the Queensland Police Service — 12.08.2011

The Crime and Misconduct Commission has released the results of a public survey which measures the community’s current perceptions of the Queensland Police Service.

As outlined in the report — Public perceptions of the Queensland Police Service — the survey shows that Queenslanders continue to believe that police officers are honest and generally behave well.

However, public confidence in the QPS complaints handling processes has declined since the last survey, which was conducted in 2008.

The CMC’s report is released at a time when there is a spotlight on the police disciplinary process.

In December last year the CMC released a report – Setting the standard – which examined the police disciplinary system. In response to one of the CMC’s recommendations, the state government established an independent review panel.

The panel was provided with a draft of the CMC’s survey results to inform its response.

The survey, the eighth in the Public Perceptions series, helps the CMC to monitor changes in the nature and quality of the public’s contact with police, public opinion about the behaviour and integrity of the Queensland Police Service and the public’s willingness to use complaints services.
