In Queensland, the majority of criminal laws have been codified in the Criminal Code (1899). The Criminal Code covers a range of offences relating to violence, sex offences, property, fraud, arson, corruption, breaches of the peace and others. It also contains procedural rules and practices.
Further offences are contained in other pieces of legislation, for example, the Weapons Act, Drugs Misuse Act, Traffic Act, Bail Act, Criminal Proceeds Confiscations Act and the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act.
In addition, a great number of other legislative enactments create criminal offences for specific offences or serious breaches of statutory duties. Some examples include the Fair Trading Act, Corporations Act (C’th), Workplace Health and Safety Act and the Casino Control Act.
In this section you can find the address a map and contact details for every police station, criminal law court and prison / correction centre in Queensland.
