Police Liaison Officers are employed by the Queensland Police Service to establish and maintain a positive rapport between culturally specific communities and the Queensland Police Service. The role of Police Liaison Officers is to promote trust and understanding through their liaison role by assisting the community and police to:
- reduce and prevent crime;
- divert people from the criminal justice system;
- advise and educate police officers on culture and cultural issues; and
- improve community knowledge of law and order issues and policing services.
