On the beat: an evaluation of beat policing in Queensland (PDF, 2.8 MB)

Beat policing constitutes an important shift in the nature of operational policing. There has been much interest expressed in recent years in expanding this form of policing throughout Queensland. This report presents the findings of an evaluation conducted by Research and Prevention officers of the Crime and Misconduct Commission.
