Queensland police performance measured on number of tickets issued

POLICE performance will be measured on the number of tickets issued and arrests they make in a controversial move likened to the notorious “kill sheet” where quotas are set.

Officers at a major Brisbane station were told a “monthly performance sheet system” would be issued to “assist in identifying any shortfalls, failings or weaknesses” so they could be addressed before performance development reviews.

“At present I am looking at measuring performance against tasks, domestic violence incidents, full briefs, traffic tickets, street checks and so on,” the memo sent to staff at the station said.

Tasks more than three months old would require an explanation by the officer as to why it was not completed, the memo said.

“The sheet would also have facility for officers with little or no figures to provide an explanation as to what they have done for the month.”

The memo asked for feedback from officers as to what should be measured.

Police officers who spoke to The Courier-Mail likened the contents of the memo to the reintroduction of “kill sheets”, in which police were given targets or quotas.

“Policing, by its very nature, does not allow officers to be compared on a monthly basis to compare work performance (output) against their peers,” one officer said.

“Some managers need to familiarise themselves with their own policy, procedures and human resource guidelines before threatening staff with a poor grading at the end of a performance development and assessment cycle if their figures aren’t good.”

The Queensland Police Union has been caught in the middle of the debate with one of its members writing the memo.

QPU president Ian Leavers said the union repudiated the concept of quotas for arrests and infringement notices issued by police.
But he said in this instance the actions taken “appear to be reasonable management practices” with the union continuing to monitor it.

The Queensland Police Service did not respond to a list of questions about the memo but said the organisation supported reasonable management action and expected its members to perform to a high standard.
The review process provided a framework for individual performance management to be achieved through discussing, negotiating, planning, reviewing and documenting employee

progress towards achieving the objectives and standards required.

The memo follows one sent to a Brisbane traffic branch that suggested minimum ticket quotas during a trial of a new ticketing system.

“There is no hiding during this period,” the 2015 memo said.

“I would suggest a minimum of 10 tickets per shift/every shift (that is only one ticket every 48 minutes of your shift).”

Vaughan Mark Hildebrand: Sydney cop who ‘blackmailed women with nudes’ also charged with rape

A SYDNEY police officer accused of stalking and blackmailing women with their naked photographs has now been charged with a further dozen offences, including rape and soliciting child pornography.

Former constable Vaughan Mark Hildebrand, 28, has been in jail since his arrest in June and now faces 33 charges relating to the alleged harassment of 10 women, some of them female colleagues.

Police allege Hildebrand, of Campbelltown, used restricted police data and several social media accounts and phones to haunt his victims and in one case pretended to be a plastic surgeon to obtain a picture of a woman’s breasts.

A majority of the alleged offences occurred while he was stationed at Sydney City Local Area Command but span from 2010 to 2016.

More recently, Hildebrand has been accused of the having sexual intercourse with a young woman without her consent and two counts of using a carriage service to solicit child pornography.

After The Daily Telegraph broke the story of Hildebrand’s charges, a number of other women came forward with their stories.

He was originally arrested at a Menai property, in Sydney’s south, and charged with 17 offences relating to two female officers and third woman.

Vaughan has apparently been “tormented” in jail, according to his lawyer.

He has applied for bail twice but it has been refused.

The 28-year-old is charged with one count of misconduct in public office, 11 counts of using a carriage service to harass and intimidate and six counts of stalking or intimidating with the intention of causing physical fear.

Officers also charged him with a number of firearm offences after finding a Glock and several rounds of ammunition during a search warrant.

Police will allege Hildebrand accessed restricted data on a police computer in January this year, which sparked a covert investigation by officers attached to the NSW Force’s ­Professional Standards Command.

After he was arrested he was suspended without pay but has since resigned from the NSW Police Force.

At the time of his arrest, Acting Assistant Commissioner David Donohue was horrified a fellow officer stood accused of such serious crimes.

“We are entrusted as police officers to uphold the law and while these are allegations, any misuse of trust is a serious ­matter,” Supt Donohue said.

Hildebrand allegedly targeted vulnerable women and in two cases, after obtaining pictures of their breasts, he threatened to publish the images unless they sent him more explicit photos.

In one case he allegedly threatened a woman and said he would contact her partner and publish images he had ­obtained of her.

Hildebrand is expected to next face Central Local Court in December.

Shocking vision shows officers kick, punch duo

Three police officers are under investigation after shocking arrest vision has been played in a Perth court.

In the disturbing vision, the officers – known only as Hitchen, Richardson and Thompson – are seen kicking a woman to the ground and repeatedly punching a man they were holding down in Hamilton Hill.

The officers had claimed the woman, Jacqueline Briffa, had tried to grab one of the constable’s guns, but the video showed otherwise in court.
Three officers are now under investigation after the arrest vision emerged.

Ms Briffa was charged with three counts of assaulting a police officer and attempting to possess a firearm, but those charges were thrown out after the video was played in court.

Magistrate Malley then accused the three officers of misleading the court, saying “the allegation the accused partially removed Richardson’s gun, frankly, is nonsense”.

The magistrate also found allegations that Ms Briffa bit the officers were false.
The woman can be heard screaming during the ordeal.

The man in the video, who was punched at least 20 times, was arrested and charged with obstructing police.

He was fined $100 in court.

The officers are now under review, but remain on full duties.

 Fewer Gold Coast cops on the beat as Opposition reveals officer numbers to fight crim

    Fewer Gold Coast cops on the beat as Opposition reveals officer numbers to fight crime wave

    THE Gold Coast has 40 fewer police than 12 months ago despite a crime wave, State Parliament has been told.

    Coomera LNP MP Michael Crandon released the statistics today which were later rejected by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk sparking a heated debate.

    In what is most likely the last Question Time before Parliament rises for an election campaign, Opposition frontbenchers peppered the Government on its crime record and recruitment of police.

    Mr Crandon, in a question directed to the Premier, said the Coast district had 846 police officers compared to 886 a year ago.

    He asked why the Government was “shifting cops out of the Gold Coast” when crime rates had exploded.

    Referring to the latest Coast statistics, Mr Crandon said the rates of assaults had increased by 28 per cent and robberies were up by 20 per cent.

    “Premier, why doesn’t the Government see the safety of my community in the Coomera electorate as a priority,” Mr Crandon said.

    Premier Palaszczuk defended the “hard work” of police to protect residents and attacked the Opposition for not releasing the crime statistics during the previous Newman Government.

    “The crime statistics are a public document because my government releases them unlike those when they were in Government. There were no reports because they shut it down,” she said.

    “I’m advised there are more police on the Gold Coast than there have been in the past.”

    Ms Palaszczuk said the Coast district from June 30 had 1100 police which included 846 full-time officers along with those attached to specialist agencies like Taskforce Maxima and forensics.

    “So you’re cherry picking statistics, you’re not adding them together. It’s about time you got your facts correct,” she said.

    The Gold Coast Bulletin earlier this month, having run the Thin Grim Line series focusing on policing, revealed the Coast will only get five new young police recruits before Christmas.

    The 2016-17 annual statistical review released by the Queensland Police Service confirmed massive increases in violent offences and fall-off in drug arrests and good order offences which require saturated on the beat policing.

    The Southeastern Region which includes Logan and the Gold Coast has recorded an 85 per cent increase in “other homicide” offences.

    Key signs of the drug culture included a 41 per cent increase in unarmed robbery and staggering 80 per cent boost in unlawful entry relating to shops.
