This Sunday Lecture will take you on a path over the last twenty-five years of the evolution of the police uniform and kit to that worn by today’s general duties police officers within Queensland; from light blue shirts to dark navy polos, from bush hat to baseball cap, from notebooks to iPads. This presentation will discuss the now, with references to the past and the future, of police uniform and accoutrements, from a General Duties officer point of view. Learn about the evolution of material technologies, miniaturisation, fit-for-purpose requirements, and see how the kit of the frontline officer has evolved.
The presentation will be by Senior Sergeant Warrick Jackes, a jack-of-all-trades officer who’s service commenced at Beenleigh in the 1990s, then transferred to the Academy as a facilitator. He has enjoyed a long stint as an operational advisor, and was readily deployed to flood-bound towns in central and far western Queensland during the early 2010’s.
This one and a half hour presentation will start at 11am on Sunday, July 31 and will be both informative and educational. It is suitable for all audiences.
