Alicia Bennett has worked in the justice field for her entire career. After 14 years in the Queensland Police Service, she joined QCS as a Senior Investigator with the Ethical Standards Unit.

In her current role, Alicia facilitates leadership and management courses, the Diploma of Correctional Administration and delivers training at probation and parole offices and correctional centres.

“I love working at the Academy. My colleagues are fantastic to work with and I get the opportunity to meet staff from throughout the state. I am really passionate about our training being innovative and contemporary, so I enjoy researching and writing our training packages as much as delivering them,” she says.

In 2015, Alicia and Principal Advisor, Lisa Dalmau received a Department of Justice and Attorney-General Excellence Award for their Mastering Difficult Conversations workshop.

“Lisa and I are really proud of the workshop and believe that it addresses important challenges experienced by our workforce. At the end of the day it’s all about people and maintaining healthy and productive relationships,” says Alicia.
