Good morning Mr Cardwell,

Thank you for contacting the Queensland Police Service, Right to Information and Privacy Unit. I refer to your email below regarding access to documents held by the Queensland Police Service.

Should you wish to make an application for documents, you will need to complete the attached access application form. Alternatively, you can also apply online at- http://www.rti.qld.gov.au/

You will also need to provide a certified copy of your identification. This identification document can be a photocopy of a driver licence, passport or a birth certificate. Please ensure that the photocopy has been certified by either a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner for Declarations or a Solicitor.

If the documents you seek access to contain your personal information only, there is no charge associated with your request. If you seek access to documents which do not concern your personal information or contain another individual/s personal information, your request will be processed pursuant to the Right to Information Act 2009 and therefore payment of the application fee ($52.60) is required. An electronic payment link can be issued once the application has been allocated to a case manager.

Your completed application form and certified identification document should then be sent directly to this Unit either by post to:

Queensland Police Service
Right to Information & Privacy Unit
GPO Box 1440

or by email to:
[email address]

Once an RTI application is received and deemed valid, the legislation allows our Unit twenty-five (25) business days to process your request. This can be extended by an additional ten (10) business days if your request requires us to consult with third parties.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning the application process, please do not hesitate to contact this Unit on (07) 3364 4666 or in writing to [email address].

Kind regards,

C Johnson
Administration Officer
Right to Information & Privacy Unit
