June 2021 meeting

Redcliffe Police Station 1885

Join us tomorrow for our June Monthly Meeting. Our guest speaker, Lisa Jones (curator of the Queensland Police Museum), will be speaking on the topic “Policing in Redcliffe”. This long-awaited talk is sure to be an interesting one as Lisa explores how policing has evolved in Redcliffe through the ages.

Curator Lisa Jones has administered the Queensland Police Museum since 1997. She holds a Master of Museum Studies and uses her 35 years of museum experience to manage the QPM collections and exhibitions.

The Queensland Police Museum aspires to be an accessible and valued museum of national standing that collects and explores Queensland’s policing history. We actively document, collect and preserve the rich depth of history that describes policing in this state since 1859.  Through our collections and exhibitions, we enhance the public image of the Queensland Police Service and foster pride in its achievements in the wider community. The story we tell also describes today’s innovative, progressive and responsive Queensland Police Service. The Police Museum use its resources, exhibitions and public programs to investigate and compare issues faced by police officers of times past and of today.
