Extension of retirement age for Police Officers

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Chris Mundt
171 Petersen Street

Total Signatures - 59

Sponsoring Member: Dr Mark Robinson MP

Posting Date: 21/11/2012

Closing Date: 8/02/2013

Tabled Date: 13/02/2013

Responded By: Hon Jack Dempsey MP on 15/03/2013

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Queensland Police Service has an extremely valuable resource pool that is being wasted through forced retirement at 60 years old.  There are numerous positions that could be filled by older officers. If police powers were required then "Special Constable" positions could be created to allow officers to fulfill such positions as required.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to make the necessary changes to allow Police Officers in the Queensland Police Service to work past 60 years old if so desired.
