QPU response teams are providing support over 1,300 kilometres apart for members involved in critical incidents in Townsville & Beenleigh.

QPU President Ian Leavers & Vice President Shane Prior have joined Northern Regional Rep Peter Thomas after an officer involved shooting while QPU Legal Manager Shayne Maxwell along with South East Regional Rep Andy Williams are in Beenleigh tonight attending another critical incident.

Wherever police are in the State, the QPU will be there to provide assistance and support.

We, as always, also utilise for members the expert assistance of Queensland’s best lawyers with Gnech & Associates and Gilshenan & Luton.

Both incidents reinforce the unpredictably and complexity of the job we as police do.

Remember Unity is Strength and the QPU is available whenever needed, all over Queensland 24hrs a day.
