School-based Police officer


There are about 30 School Based Police Officers throughout the State and between us we cover approximately 50 state high schools. Our main role is to establish positive relationships between students and police. We contribute to establishing a safe and supportive learning environment for students; conduct crime prevention activities within school; investigate crime activities within school and the school community; provide a police resource in school; delivering lectures and providing information on law, police duties and other related topics which support the school curriculum; and participate in student activities such as excursions and camps.

Hours of duty

Generally hours are Monday to Friday 8am-4pm.

I begin and end every shift at Brisbane City Station so I endeavour to be at Kelvin Grove State College from 9am until 3pm.

To make an appointment

If you are a student, you can come and see me during your morning tea and lunch breaks. If it is an urgent matter, you can attend my office at any time to discuss the issue.

If you are a parent/caregiver and wish to see me in relation to your student, please call Kelvin Grove State College on (07) 3552 7333 or Brisbane City on (07) 3258 2533 to make an appointment or leave a message and I will contact you to make arrangements as soon as I can.

Always remember

Outside of school hours, if you are unable to handle a situation, call the local police or, in an emergency, call 000.

Crime Stoppers 

A telephone hotline for information about any criminal activity. You the caller need not give your name and are known only by a code number. Remaining anonymous allows you to overcome any fear of involvement or retaliation. Your call is not recorded or taped. Only you know who gave information – you are not identified in any way. If an arrest follows, you may be eligible to claim a reward of up to $1,000. Even when collecting a reward you remain anonymous! Rewards are paid for from the monies raised from the general and business communities.

For more information visit the Crime Stoppers site or ring toll free 1800 333 000.

A Crime Free Community is Everyone's Responsibility

Online safety tips

  • Never give out personal information on the net, like your full name, address, phone number or school.

  • Only allow your friends to view your personal blog and profile.

  • Never send your picture to someone you don’t know.

  • Don’t accept invitations to view webcams from unknown internet users.

  • Never arrange face-2-face meetings with people met online.

  • Understand predators ask personal questions and attempt to become friends quickly.

  • Time chatting online to a person does not equal trust or knowing the person.

Party safe

Everyone enjoys going to or hosting a party. For young people it is certainly a part of growing up and celebrating special occasions with your friends. While most parties are fun for everyone involved, intoxicated guests or gate crashers can sometimes ruin the occasion. This information provides some ideas to assist in holding successful, enjoyable and safe parties for everyone concerned including parents, hosts and guest.

Registering your party with police provides police with the opportunity to supply you with advice and resources to help in organising a safe and lawful party.  It also ensures that if things do go wrong on the night, police have the information necessary to quickly and effectively deal with any issues. For details on how to register your party download the Party Safe Registration Form from the Qld Police website.
