Start the conversation

Queensland’s Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) is still open for business during the COVID-19 crisis, with hearings set up to adhere to all Department of Health pandemic measures.

In a statement the CCC said it had closed its reception area and office to all unplanned visitors in the interests of public health and safety.

It said that if a person was required to attend the CCC office, it was advisable to make an appointment with the relevant CCC officer, or call reception prior to arrival so that appropriate measures could be put in place.

It asked that documents be sent via email or post wherever possible.

Members of the public can still report corruption or police misconduct to the CCC via its online complaints form or by phoning a complaints officer on (07) 3360 6060.

The CCC said it had reviewed its hearing procedures to ensure they were consistent with official health advice and directives.

“When arriving at the CCC’s Green Square premises people should go to the Level 2 Reception area,” the Commiission said.

“Notices are posted directing that only two people at a time are to occupy a lift,” it said.

“Appropriate measures have been taken to ensure hearing and waiting rooms enable CCC officers, witnesses and their legal representatives to comply with social distancing requirements.”

It said the measures included signage indicating maximum room occupancy and floor markings.

It said a factsheet on the health and safety protocols in place for hearings would be sent to participants prior to their attendance.
