PublishingPageContent

Under Queensland's School Based Policing Program (SBPP), 57 state secondary schools (58 campuses) have a School Based Police Officer (SBPO).

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.

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 SBPP seeks to enhance community safety and security, and increase community confidence and satisfaction with police by building positive relationships with, and providing a quality policing service for, members of the school community.

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

  • promoting positive relationships between the school community and police
  • assisting with the understanding of law/legal process and procedures, particularly in relation to young people
  • attending to police-related matters within the school community, where appropriate.

The duties of the SBPO are supported and monitored by a local consultative team, comprised of the principal/s, the SBPO and the SBPO's police supervisor.

Record keeping

OneSchool is a comprehensive software program that enables Queensland State Schools to efficiently and effectively manage key teaching and school administrative activities, as well as the ongoing support of students. One component of the OneSchool system is the Student Profile, which includes records of contact made concerning the student. Interactions between a SBPO and students or parents may be recorded in OneSchool. SBPOs will always exercise discretion and confidentiality. For further detail about Information security please visit the OneSchool information page.
