Police Reporting Options
- Ring Police link Ph: 131 444 or look on the QPS website to contact your local station first, identify that the person you are assisting has a disability as they should do a video recorded interview and some information about what you would like to report to them. They will tell you what the next steps are. It’s important that the person has someone to go with them for the interview who isn’t connected to the incident in anyway or was not the first or second point of disclosure. You can contact WWILD for that support if its needed.
- Alternate Reporting Options are available if the person wants to report the incident, but is worried or nervous, or would like to remain anonymous.
