Principal Strategy Officer Michelle Hayes was acknowledged for outstanding academic record, experience in the criminal justice system and delivering a practical ‘field performance’ evaluation of the utility of GPS-enabled technology in a Queensland domestic and family violence context. For her efforts, she was awarded the Excellence in Research on Improving Law Enforcement for Women Award.

The Integrity and Courage Award was awarded to Detective Senior Constable Amanda Watt for having the courage required to improve the community and law enforcement for everyone.
As this year’s awardee, Detective Senior Constable Watt was recognised for her devotion to investigating criminal and corrupt behaviour in the corrections environment.
