As part of the Queensland Police Service’s continuing commitment to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community it has rolled out an Online Learning Product (OLP) to all officers in time for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

The learning tool helps officers by enhancing their understanding of:

  • Significant historical events that have impacted on the LGBTI community
  • Issues confronting the LGBTI community including discrimination, vilification, mental health and domestic and family violence
  • Legislation and QPS policy and guidelines specific to the LGBTI community
  • Effective communication and practical policing strategies to improve the delivery of a professional, non-discriminatory and accessible policing response
  • Internal and external support and referral service options for LGBTI clients.

While the training benefits all QPS members it has a particular focus for general duties officers, station client service officers and watch house staff who often engage with LGBTI persons during sensitive and vulnerable situations.

The OLP can be accessed through Advance2 by enrolling in  the course code QC1395_01. The successful completion of  this training will result in the awarding 5 credit points.

The QPS is committed to ensuring that, as a Service, we reflect the diversity of the people we protect and support members of the community and QPS officers and staff members who identify as LGBTI.
