About this role

  • Communication
  • Critical-thinking
  • Teamwork

The State Flying Squad (SFS) is an investigative unit of detectives in the Queensland Police. They form part of the Homicide Investigation Group and are based out of Queensland Police Headquarters in Brisbane City.

Their main role is to assist regions all over Queensland to investigate major and serious crimes or ongoing crime issues. This means there is a lot of travel within Queensland and a broad variety of jobs/investigations to work on – every shift is different. The investigations range from homicides to serious drug offences to Child Protection/Youth Justice and everything in between.

It’s a very rewarding role as they not only help victims, and the community, but also other police officers around the state.
