QCS officers to be recognised for service on National Corrections Day

The Story and Victoria bridges will light up in blue and silver on Friday to celebrate National Corrections Day, recognising the important work of corrective services officers in protecting communities across Australia.

As a top tier front line public safety agency, our workforce is our greatest asset. It is vital to QCS achieving its purpose, with about 5,500 officers working every day to protect the people of Queensland by dealing directly with some of the most complex and dangerous people in our society.

QCS officers act as agents of change, dedicated to addressing offending behaviour and preventing crime to keep our communities safe.

Commissioner Martin will recognise officers who have gone above and beyond to make a difference and keep Queensland safe in the categories of Safety, Excellence, Empowerment, Respect and Accountability at an awards ceremony to be held in Brisbane.

QCS Commissioner Peter Martin APM said Corrections Day is an important opportunity to take a moment to reflect on the good work that is being done by QCS officers.

“I am pleased to recognise our officers who will be presented with their awards this Friday that embody these principles through their important work of keeping the community safe,” he said.

“As we celebrate all our successes and work towards our future state, we are actively seeking the best and brightest Queenslanders to join us on the front line of public safety.

“If you have ever thought about a career in corrections, now is the time to join us.”
