CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF THE QUEENSLAND CORRECTIVE SERVICES ACADEMY

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the QCS Academy. Established in 1986, the Academy was originally known as the Training and Development College and over the years has continued to promote values of integrity, service, respect, opportunity and accountability.

A function was held in April to commemorate the event and was attended by more than 100 current and former staff members.

The Academy is responsible for the training of new custodial officers through an intensive 10-week program, as well as the development and delivery of programs for probation and parole staff.

The training of security and drug detection dogs and handlers takes place at the Academy, as do management and leadership programs for staff across QCS.
