Coronavirus-infected cruise passengers land on mercy flight.A Queensland police superintendent has been suspended for allegedly photographing the confidential details of a domestic violence victim, Guardian Australia has learned.

The senior detective is the second officer in Queensland known to be accused of using police computer systems to obtain details related to a domestic violence complainant. In early November, police and the CCC both released statements that said the year-old detective superintendent had been stood down from operational duties, then suspended, amid an ongoing investigation into the unauthorised access of confidential information.

The statements made no mention of the specific allegations. But Guardian Australia can reveal the officer was suspended for allegedly taking a photograph of a computer screen displaying the personal details of a domestic violence complainant. At the time the officer was stood down, police were under extraordinary scrutiny in relation to their handling of a similar incident — senior constable Neil Punchard accessed the address of a domestic violence victim and disclosed the details to her former partner.

He was docked pay but not demoted or dismissed. After considerable public pressure, a campaign from the victim and advice from the CCC, police eventually laid charges against Punchard and he was convicted of computer hacking last year. Carroll remains under pressure to sack him. In November last year, the same week the detective superintendent was suspended, the CCC began hearings into Operation Impalawhich was investigating public sector data misuse. The CCC eventually recommended tougher criminal sanctions for public officials who access confidential information unlawfully, after hearing evidence that agencies were often inconsistent in deciding whether to handle breaches as criminal complaints or internal discipline matters.

Several people with knowledge of the case have spoken to Guardian Australia out of concern at the time it has taken to investigate the case. The man had been seconded to a role at the Crime and Corruption Commission Queensland last year. It is understood he is on full pay while suspended. Topics Queensland.

Conducting research.S ome Tweed Heads residents cannot leave their driveway without crossing an unmarked border from New South Wales into Queensland. Locals point out a well-known spot where cars park straddling the border to avoid the attention of parking rangers on both sides.

On Tuesday the Queensland government announced its borders would close from Wednesday night. From midnight police would enforce a permit system allowing only freight and other essential travel. That applies to Queensland as well. People in the south-east should not travel to other parts of the state. Exemptions were: freight, emergency vehicles, emergency workers, those travelling to and from work, court orders including family court, compassionate grounds and medical treatment.

Residents have been told they can obtain permits to cross the border, and police will conduct RBT-style checks to ensure compliance. Details of how the scheme would work had yet to filter through to residents whose lives straddle the border. Whether such a system can be enforced is another thing. In Coolangatta, on the Queensland side of the border, many shop workers say they live in New South Wales.

There are a lot of friends and family who live on either side, the communities are very intertwined. Milne said she was particularly concerned about the impact on medical staff who crossed the border daily to go to work. Mick, who works in a Queensland bottle shop part-time, said he took the bus across the border to work.

Reuse this content. Most popular.Posted April 11, The face of Queensland's police service is changing with officers being directed to shave their beards to protect them from coronavirus. A Queensland Police Service QPS spokesperson said in an email sent to all service members last week that officers must be clean shaven to ensure an effective seal if they have to wear face masks while on the beat.

One of far north Queensland's most senior police officers, Chief Superintendent Brian Huxley, said prior to the directive he had worn a beard since the s.

Chief Superintendent Huxley said provisions had been made for service members to apply to retain their beards for cultural, religious or medical reasons. In another statement, a spokesperson for the Queensland Ambulance Service QAS said paramedics have also been told to remove all facial hair. Queensland's Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, Craig Crawford, who served as a paramedic prior to entering politics, said some people had strong connections with their facial hair. Mr Crawford admitted he, like many people now working remotely, had gone in the opposite direction and let his facial hair grow out slightly.

It's providing extra surface area for the virus to land on you," Dr Karl said. But at this time I'm afraid we don't know. Dr Karl said while the virus is quite small, the effective dose is quite high, and an unsuspecting beard or moustache could act as a convenient location for COVID to hang out.

But if you've got hair on your face, they are just hanging in there," he said. With more members of the community choosing to wear masks, Dr Karl said the hipster beard may soon go out of fashion.

Chief Superintendent Huxley said when the directive was issued he was happy to lead from the front, despite being both unrecognisable to his colleagues and becoming the butt of more than a few jokes.
