State Specialised Vehicle Coordinator, Greg Williams retired in 2016 after almost 42 years of service with QCS.

Greg Williams retired from the Escort and Security Branch (ESB) last year after almost 42 years of service. Greg commenced at the Wacol Correctional Centre in 1974, before transferring to ESB in 1991.

As State Specialised Vehicle Coordinator, Greg’s role involved overseeing the manufacturing of new vehicles for QCS to ensure the safe and secure transportation of prisoners.

Last year, Greg received an Excellence Award in the Customer Focus category in recognition of his commitment to the High Risk Vehicle Initiative. The following is an excerpt from his nomination:

Greg has been directly involved with escort vehicles for a total 25 years and brought all his skills and considerable knowledge to the work environment. He is analytical and methodical and keenly pursues building the best escort vehicle fleet possible; and to this end he was quietly passionate with unending resolve.

This was not a project or short term obsession for him but rather a life time commitment. Queensland Corrective Services has 40 specialised high security escort vehicles with Greg’s fingerprints permanently on them.
