School-based Police Officers

Under Queensland's School Based Policing Program, 50 school-based police officers (SBPOs) work in 57 state secondary schools throughout Queensland.

Role of SBPOs

SBPOs' participation in the education of students is an integral part of the current approach to policing, which places a greater emphasis on police engaging with the community and working collaboratively to provide effective policing services.

Specifically, SBPOs form partnerships within the school community to identify and develop appropriate community safety and crime prevention strategies that address local issues and are aimed at ensuring Queensland school communities are safe and secure.

The school-based policing strategy has the potential to enhance students' educational outcomes by helping to create environments that support student welfare and learning.

The SBPO assists in contributing to the overall health and wellbeing of the school community by supporting students at risk of offending or becoming involved in the juvenile justice system. The School Based Policing Program also encourages school communities to adopt approaches that aid in crime prevention and proactive policing.

The SBPO is appointed to a school or cluster of schools to assist the school community and police in a variety of tasks including:

School-based officers' duties are supported by negotiation and monitored by a local consultative team, comprised of the principal/s, the officer and the officer's police supervisor.
