The QPS Awards for Excellence acknowledge and reward individuals and teams for innovative, creative and outstanding initiatives, projects or systems that have been implemented across the State.

Highly Commenced, Bronze, Silver and Gold were presented to eighteen projects teams in the categories of Customer Focus, Fostering Innovation, Excellence in Performance, Courage and Integrity, and Excellence in Leadership.

Commissioner Stewart congratulated both the winners and all finalists for their commitment to improving police practices with the current needs of the Queensland Community.

“These awards not only acknowledge outstanding projects and initiatives, but identify those officers and staff members who have sought ways to improve the service offered by the QPS,” Commissioner Stewart said.

“The projects being recognised today are an example of QPS members devising new and interesting ways to address the issues faced by the community.”

The following finalists were awarded Gold: for Customer Focus, G20 Community Engagement; for Fostering Innovation, Queensland Fixated Threat Assessment Centre; for Excellence in Performance, G20 – Public Safety and Specialist Support; for Courage and Integrity, Inspector Steve Kersley and Senior Sergeant Adrian Rieck – Angellala Creek Truck Explosion; and for Excellence in Leadership, G20 Group – Senior Leadership Team.

“I would like to acknowledge the external parties who have supported development or assisted in the delivery of these projects. Positive working relationships with groups and members of the community encourage action and resolve issues,” Commissioner Stewart said.

At the ceremony the G20 Group was also recognised and awarded the Commissioner’s Outstanding Award for their demonstrated achievements beyond core expectations.

“G20 Operation Southern Cross was the largest and most complex security operation ever undertaken by the QPS,” Commissioner Stewart said.

“It is only fitting for those involved to be recognised with this award for the success of the operation.”
