Stock Police will always support the bush

Published:

The Queensland Police Service’s Major and Organised Crime Squad (Rural), also known as the Stock Squad,  plays a vital role enforcing the law in rural areas.

This will not change.

Claims to the contrary are simply wrong.

Yesterday Police Minister Mark Ryan highlighted in Parliament the important role these rural specialist teams play right across Queensland.

“We have a very important investment in Major and Organised Crime Squads (Rural), and they are located right across the state in regional areas, keeping those communities safe and investigating those crimes which are unique to rural and regional Queensland.

“MOCS (Rural) is a very important part of policing in Queensland.

“Those specialist teams will be staying right where they are, serving rural Queensland communities.

“If anyone doubts that, they can ask the Police Commissioner.

“Commissioner Carroll is adamant these specialist rural teams will stay where they are.

“The work the members of these teams do is very specialised and they are experts in their field.

“It is simply a nonsense for anyone to suggest that their invaluable work will not continue,” the Minister said.
