Australian Corrections Medal conferred on officers

Published:

The Governor of Queensland, His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey, AC, today conferred the Australian Corrections Medal (ACM) on QCS officers Julie Steinheuer and Dennis Hayes at an investiture ceremony at Government House in Brisbane.

Corrective Services Minister Mark Ryan said the ACM was awarded for distinguished service by an operational member of an Australian civilian correctional service and held substantial significance within the Australian Honours System.

“The ACM represents what has always been true about Queensland Corrective Services, but not often recognised publicly,” Minister Ryan said.

“Every day, in all corners of our State, we have officers like Julie Steinheuer and Dennis Hayes who are working diligently to protect the community.

“The establishment of the ACM in 2018, by recognition of Her Majesty, the Queen, is the highest praise possible for the important and vital role our staff play in keeping the community safe.”

The medal was awarded for the first time last year and Ms Steinheuer and Mr Hayes are the third and fourth Queensland Corrective Service officers to receive the honour.

Queensland Corrective Services Commissioner Peter Martin APM said Ms Steinheuer and Mr Hayes were fitting recipients of the award.

“They represent the exceptional diligence, professionalism and distinguished service expected of a national award,” Commissioner Martin said.

“Both Ms Steinheuer and Mr Hayes are exemplary officers, and demonstrate the professionalism, drive and commitment to delivering world-class corrective services which epitomises our workforce.

“I congratulate both of them on receiving the Australian Corrections Medal. Queensland Corrective Services is fortunate to have officers of their calibre amongst our ranks.”
