Supporting victims through police referrals

Queensland Police Referral Services was launched in December 2015 to provide an effective mechanism for frontline police to connect vulnerable community members to external support services to address many of the underlying issues that contribute to people becoming a victim of crime or engaging in offending behaviour. The online referral process, accessed by police remotely or at stations, allows auto-routing to the most appropriate service provider for client follow up within two business days. There are currently 23 different categories of issues that clients can be referred to Service Providers through the Police Referrals Service.

In this webinar, Acting Senior Sergeant Chris Stafford from the Queensland Police Service took us through the work of Police Referral Services and the how CLCs can assist their clients to access appropriate support from the QPS.
