Better policing within the multicultural community

ADDITIONAL policing staff, better training for officers, and targeted programs for diverse communities are delivering results for the thousands of people within the multicultural community.

Police Minister Jack Dempsey said the Queensland Police Service had more than 160 police liaison officers and 52 cross cultural liaison officers working everyday to proactively engage with Queensland's multicultural community.

"The Queensland Police Service's Cultural Support Unit is a dedicated team which works each day to provide information and training to frontline officers to better deliver police services to the diverse communities of Queensland," he said.

"The role of police officer is like no other, so we have to prepare our officers like none other and that is why we are committed to better support and training for officers working with multicultural communities."

Mr Dempsey said 31 Torres Strait Island police support officers and 14 additional officers were currently receiving specialised training at the Queensland Police Academy ahead of their deployment to communities across the state.
