History and location

The school was established in 1991 at the request of the profession, following the Fitzgerald Enquiry. The enquiry highlighted the need for quality tertiary education for police officers. We have since grown to become a leading centre for scholarship and teaching.

Located in the heart of Brisbane's CBD, we're close to the main justice departments and agencies.
