Relations between the police and Indigenous people have had a troubled history, in Queensland and throughout Australia. Some of these problems persist.

The Queensland Government has now asked the Crime and Misconduct Commission to conduct an independent inquiry into some issues relating to policing in Indigenous communities.
The CMC’s Inquiry into Policing in Indigenous Communities will include public submissions and hearings. Afterwards, the CMC will issue a public report containing recommendations.

This issues paper was published by the CMC on 13 April 2007.
