South Brisbane District welcomes their latest Police Liaison Officers (PLOs)

The Queensland Police Service (QPS) has welcomed five Police Liaison Officers (PLOs) to the South Brisbane District.

The PLOs, Aulia, Noushin, John, Bronson and Sunny bring a wealth of knowledge from previous professions such as education, science and law, as well as a range of cultural backgrounds including First Nations, Somali, Farsi/Dari and Korean.

PLOs play a vital role in connecting and engaging with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) community members and multicultural groups, focussing on establishing and maintaining a positive rapport with emergency services personnel.

PLOs will lean on their own cultural understandings as a key cornerstone for fostering positive relationships, co-operation and understanding between diverse cultural communities and the QPS.

PLOs assist the QPS in better understanding the various cultures in our communities and ultimately improving community access to policing services.

New PLOs South Brisbane


Aulia, the second female-Somali PLO to join the QPS, was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya, before moving to Australia with her family where she began High School and later completed a Diploma in Early Childhood Education.

In 2019, Aulia moved to Brisbane to start a family of her own and began working as a Volunteer in Policing (ViP), as she has always loved helping the community.

When the opportunity arose to connect with her culture and community, Aulia applied to become a PLO and was successfully inducted in 2023.


Noushin was born in Iran and lived there until she was 16-years-old.

Under the protection of the UN Refugee programme, Noushin resettled in the United Kingdom in the 1980s, where she studied and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Physics from Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland.

After graduation, Noushin decided to begin working across various non-government organisations (NGOs), developing projects and activities across England and Belgium.

Noushin moved to Australia in 2019, where she continued his passion for volunteering in the community, working with women, children and young people, as well as the Farsi/Dari speaking communities.

As a newly appointed PLO, Noushin is looking forward to continuing to work with the Farsi/Dari communities and supporting the QPS to strengthen their bond with different ethnic groups.


John is a First Nations PLO who grew up on Stradbroke Island and is proudly the first in his family to attend university.

John comes from a strong sporting background, with his father being the first Aboriginal to represent Australia in an Olympic team back in 1956, who then later became the Australian Welterweight Champion in 1960 and 1961.

Now proudly taking on the role of a PLO, John has a passion for helping his community, with a vision to start programs for Indigenous youth.


Bronson is a First Nations PLO, who was born on Kamilaroi land and grew up in a strong First Nations household learning stories, dances and culture of his country.

Bronson has been a qualified butcher for the past 17 years, working across Brisbane and the Gold Coast and in recent years, has taken up concreting with his father.

Throughout his childhood, Bronson faced some challenges which led him to a career as a PLO, giving him the opportunity to set a good example for other First Nations youth, his own children and the broader community.

As a new PLO, he is looking forward to making a positive change in the minds and hearts of not only First Nations youth, but the broader community as well.


Sunny was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, where she migrated to Australia in 2005.

Sunny began a traineeship with the QPS, which then led her to apply for an administration role within the Crime and Intelligence Command in 2006.

Sunny continued working as an administration officer across various units within the Service, including the Cultural Support Unit, the Asian Specialist Unit, the Organised Crime Group, as well as the Homicide Group.

In 2022, Sunny joined the Cross Cultural Liaison Unit in the South Brisbane District as the first female Korean-speaking Police Liaison Officer.

Sunny continues to develop her education, recently completing a Master of Social Work at Queensland University of Technology, allowing her to expand on her community engagement and social work skills.

Sunny finds joy in supporting communities and helping others, specifically in providing language support and learning about the different cultures around the world.
