QCS officers recognised for service

Published:

The Story and Victoria bridges will light up in blue and silver on Friday to celebrate National Corrections Day.

Minister for Corrective Services Mark Ryan said 5,500 Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) staff work diligently every day to keep the Queensland community safe.

“These officers work with some of the most challenging and complex people in our community, performing a vital and often overlooked public service,” Mr Ryan said.

“Correctional work is complex and highly specialised, and officers are on the frontline of public safety.

“Every day they work to keep our community safe, and National Corrections Day is an opportunity to acknowledge their hard work and dedication, and thank them for their service.”

National Corrections Day events will be held across the state, with an awards ceremony to be held in Brisbane to commend officers for exceptional service.

QCS Commissioner Peter Martin APM said Corrections Day is an important opportunity to take a moment to reflect on the good work that is being done by QCS officers.

“I am thrilled to recognise our officers who will be presented with their awards this Friday that embody these principles through their important work of keeping the community safe,” he said.

“As we celebrate all our successes and work towards our future state, we are actively seeking the best and brightest Queenslanders to join us on the frontline of public safety.

“If you have ever thought about a career in corrections, now is the time to join us.”
