Annotation: This 2010-11 Annual Report of the Queensland Crime and Misconduct Commission (Australia) reviews its history and mission and reports on its achievements, performance in pursuing the Strategic Plan of 2010-14, and the challenges it has faced.
Abstract: The Queensland Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) was established on January 1, 2002, with the merger of the Criminal Justice Commission and the Queensland Crime Commission. The objectives of the CMC are to prevent and combat major crime, promote a trustworthy public sector, provide an effective witness protection service, and demonstrate organizational excellence in using a skilled, committed workforce. The report’s section on the “outcomes of major investigations” indicates that important investigations in crime and misconduct moved into the prosecution phase and resulted in significant numbers and types of charges. Operation Warrior, a landmark organized crime investigation, has resulted in eight persons being imprisoned for serious drug offenses, 14 people committed for trial, and 13 listed for a committal hearing. A total of 89 criminal charges and 81 recommendations for disciplinary action have arisen out of CMC investigations of police misconduct related to illegal drugs. The Queensland Government is currently reviewing the State’s police discipline system, which will have significant implications for how the CMC deals with complaints against police. The challenge is to achieve the correct balance in resourcing identified priorities under a limited budget. Progress reported in the pursuit of the CMC’s Strategic Plan for the period 2010-14 focuses on achievements in promoting a trustworthy public sector; provision of an effective witness protection service; and demonstration of organizational excellence through a skilled, committed workforce. The report also presents a financial summary and profiles the CMC’s leadership, operating environment, and partnerships.
