Technology to keep tabs on sex offenders
TECHNOLOGY to monitor high-risk sex offenders in the community will be modernised through $5.1 million in increased funding over four years.
Police Minister Bill Byrne said previous monitoring bracelets and associated surveillance technology had been successful in keeping the community safe but technology was always updating and improving.
Treasurer Curtis Pitt told parliament the Queensland Budget also would provide about $70 million "to go after the organised crime kingpins" and more than $16 million to improve counter-terrorism capability.
"We will make sure Queensland Police will not just keep us safe from organised crime but combat the threat of international terrorism." - RAE WILSON
