Operation Impala

Operation Impala

The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) has launched Operation Impala to examine the improper access and dissemination of confidential information by public sector agencies.

Operation Impala will use case studies to identify opportunities for reform.

The CCC public hearing will examine:

  • Factors which facilitate misuse of information within the Queensland public sector by examination of the technical, people, and systems components of information management within the Queensland Police Service, Queensland Corrective Services, Department of Education, Department of Health (including selected Hospital and Health Services (HHS) such as Gold Coast HHS and Mackay HHS) and the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
  • Features of the legislative, policy and operational environment within each agency that may enable corrupt conduct to occur or are vulnerable to corrupt conduct.
  • Reforms to better prevent, detect and deal with corrupt conduct relating to misuse of information within the identified agencies, and lessons that can be extrapolated to the broader Queensland public sector.

CCC Chairperson Alan MacSporran QC will preside at the public hearing.

The CCC intends to table a public report in Parliament at the conclusion of Operation Impala.

Access to the archived footage from the livestream of the hearing can be found in a tab below. 

Each CCC public hearing has terms of reference.
