Queensland’s police commissioner, Katarina Carroll, has announced her early resignation amidst escalating pressure on the youth crime service and responses to domestic violence. After a meeting with the state’s police minister following a recent stabbing incident, Carroll decided not to seek another term, bringing her five-month notice period forward.

She expressed gratitude for the support received during her 40-year tenure and emphasized the need for new leadership to steer the organization forward. The decision comes as the police service faces challenges such as staff shortages, increased workloads, and a call for more robust reform in police integrity. Carroll aims to be remembered as a compassionate leader who deeply cared for both the people and the state of Queensland.
