Detective Acting Superintendent Tim Leadbetter from the Organised Crime Gangs Group said the Queensland Police Service adopts a very strong approach to policing organised crime syndicates.
“Despite these unprecedented times and the demands being placed on the Queensland Police Service, there is zero tolerance for those involved in serious and organised crime.
“It’s business as usual in this regard and we will continue to be unrelenting in our efforts to disrupt and prosecute those who pose a risk to our community,” Detective Acting Superintendent Tim Leadbetter said.
