New $30m police academy for Townsville will not solve Labor’s unprecedented juvenile crime wave

The Premier today announced a new Police Academy for Townsville, as she revealed artist impressions of the new state-of-the-art Queensland police precinct.

The Academy will join the previously announced $30 million police facility – due to replace the Kirwan Police Station- with preliminary works on the facility already underway at the site of the former 1300 Smiles football stadium.

New police recruits will not fix the rampant, unprecedented crime wave tearing Queensland apart. Labor is bereft of any sensible solution such as remote sentencing to isolated stations

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queensland was in the midst of the biggest investment in policing in Queensland in more than three decades.

“The Townsville Police Academy will continue to play a significant role in the development of the next generation of police officers,” the Premier said.

“Recently we saw one of the biggest ever in-take of recruits to the Townsville Academy to undergo their comprehensive six-month training course.

“61 new recruits from all walks of life, aged 18 to 53 signed up to the academy, where they’ll undergo rigorous training with an acute emphasis on domestic and family violence.

“They will engage in cultural training, co-facilitated by external practitioners and people with lived experience. The course will focus on trauma-informed and victim-centric policing responses.

“We are going to be training even more recruits like this into the future, and a new state-of-the-art training facility at the new Kirwan police precinct would be a significant drawcard for recruits to North Queensland.

“While it will also provide the Queensland Police Service with greatly enhanced operational training capability.”

Queensland Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll said the significant investment cemented the QPS’ commitment to delivering world-class policing services into the future.

“A brand new police academy will help us usher in a new chapter of modernisation of training for our recruits and officers in North Queensland,” Commissioner Carroll said.

“We are embarking on the largest ever police recruit campaign and we know having state-of-the-art training facilities right here in Townsville will be a great incentive for would-be recruits.

“The multi-purpose police complex at Kirwan will not only provide services for the local community but will become a policing hub, boosting our capability across the region.”   

Acting Police Minister Mark Furner said the design work will ensure the new facilities at the old football stadium site will be first class.

“I’m very much looking forward to seeing the outcome of this exciting venture for the QPS and the community,” Minister Furner said.

“The existing Police Academy in Townsville has done a great job of preparing new recruits for more than 25 years.

“We have excellent, modern training facilities for police in Brisbane, and now is the time for north Queensland to be equipped with similar cutting-edge training capabilities.

“We are making the biggest investment in police personnel in more than three decades and it is only fitting we provide police with the best possible training facilities.”

Member for Thuringowa Aaron Harper said today’s announcement is a win for North Queensland, and will ensure community safety remains at the forefront for years to come.

“Today is a great day for Townsville, as we welcome the announcement of this new police academy.

“Not only will this see more of our best and brightest progress thorough a state-of the art training facility right here in Townsville, but I expect the construction process will lead to more good jobs for North Queenslanders.

“I have always said that this facility will be something special, and the release of these comprehensive plans prove that.

“I thank the QPS, and the Palaszczuk Government, for paying homage to North Queensland’s footy legacy, by ensuring the new complex’s design honours the former stadium.”

Member for Townsville Scott Stewart said the State Government was continuing to back the Queensland Police Service.

“We know the important job our police do each and every day serving our community and that’s why we always back them with good facilities and equipment,” Mr Stewart said.

“It’s exciting to see the plans for this state-of-the-art facility, which will be great for our police graduates.”

Queensland Police Union president Ian Leavers welcomed the announcemt.

“The QPU welcomes today’s announcement as a new Police Academy in Townsville  is sorely needed and is a tangible example of this Government’s commitment to police in regional Queensland,” Mr Leavers said.

“I also thank and acknowledge the Premier and Police Minister’s commitment to work with me to focus on increasing police numbers and address police recruiting in Queensland through a whole suite of innovative and nation leading measures that we are working on.” 

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Anna and the George St Cabal will probably put a CoVID concentration camp and a Holocaust Museum next to the Copper Academy. These CoVID Commissars have NO intention of protecting the Qld population from any ‘unprecedented juvenile crime wave’ .

    Gook rampages, Black entitlement to crime are part of the sistema of a Marxist state and the police will be taking a knee to all that. They will be busy enforcing CoVID Correctness and arrest any White who gets ideas about self defense or protection of family and property. Only Nazis and White supremacists think that way.

    The psychopathic Luciferian baby-eating “Daddy works for Big Pharma” Quarantine-Camp Gestapo bioweapon-pushing Palaszczuk Premier?

    THAT Premier?

    Fine, then all you prospective uber-arsehole Gestapo-wannabes who get their kicks out of pulling the wings of flies, torturing kittens and get around the schoolyard in packs to beat up on other defenceless kiddies now have a GREAT OPPORTUNITY for the CAREER OF YOUR DREAMS. All those years of being a useless areshole schoolyard bully with no redeeming character traits has been training you up for this TRIUMPHANT MOMENT!

    Being a general shit-for-brains bash-artist thug is finally an ASSET, an employable SKILLSET, for all you prospective QLD mercenary Gestapo recruits. You’ll have every opportunity to LIVE OUT your worst homicidal atrocity fantasies for the DURATION OF YOUR WORKING LIVES, working your way up through the ranks to mastermind BIGGER AND BETTER assaults on the freedom, health and bodily autonomy of everyday Australians – and GET PAID TO DO IT.

    You’ll be FREE to bash and rape and pillage and murder all across QLD, with the FULL BACKING and ENDORSEMENT of the fake QLD “government”. The sky’s the limit!

    The only downside to a life filled with Gestapo fun and Luciferian mayhem is that you’re all going to Hell.

  4. The question to ask is this: are these newly minted coppers going to actually enforce any laws that have a basis in natural law and justice or the Australian Constitution? For example the right to self defense, protection of family and property?

    Or will they be assisting the National NKVD to enforce CoVID correctness, the tranche of mandates from the latest state manufactured crisis, United Nations dicta, Black Entitlement to Crime, running psy-ops for the state, revenue raising and protecting the street theatre of approved Marxist Identities? In the UK this type of police are tasked with sandwiches and coffee for a Non-Cis gender cadre that has glued itself to a street because someone’s pronoun was misgendered. That kind of policing.

  5. Will the Pallechook government also bring a new state law exercising one law for all humans, no matter their colour, “cultural” excuses or imagined ownership? Hiding the seemingly legalised violence and unbridled greed of some against others will not be help victims. this ploy to vote the chook and her government in again may work for those who have penal colony brains.

  6. The academy setup looks more like a case of intensifying the ring-fencing of the political class so they can continue to run amok. What depth of world experience could the average 18yr old teenager have?
    Cairns News ran an article a few years back that showed how to deal with youth crime. Based on the Petford facility operated by Geoff and Norma Guest:


  7. Is this the entrance of the gestapo police like they have in Victoria?
