Forensic Science Queensland Advisory Council Seeking New Members

Expressions of interest to join the inaugural Forensic Science Queensland (FSQ) Advisory Council are now open. This Advisory Council was established under the Forensic Science Queensland Act 2024, which creates a new statutory framework to ensure high-quality, reliable, independent, and impartial forensic services for the administration of criminal justice in Queensland.

The Advisory Council's function is to monitor and review policies and procedures of FSQ, and to give advice and make recommendations on these matters to the Director of FSQ and the Attorney-General.

Membership of the Advisory Council is an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the reform of Queensland forensic services and, through this, the integrity of the Queensland criminal justice system.

Expressions of interest are sought from people with qualifications or experience in forensic services, law, policing, supporting victims of crime, or another relevant field. Applications from international forensic services experts are especially welcome.

Applications will remain open until Thursday, June 20, 2024.
