Queensland Attorney-General Shannon Fentiman said the report had identified “a number of risks” with the joining of police officers working within the CCC, including the risk of influencing the culture of the CCC and an overtly “police approach” to corruption investigations.

Fentiman said that while the report identified that police officers should continue to work with the CCC, they should involve more “civilians” to form “multidisciplinary teams” with different skills.

More training will also be established for CCC investigators, as well as the establishment of a strategic prevention unit targeting corruption.

“Another recommendation is that the CCC will not charge people following a corruption investigation unless they have received advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions,” Fentiman said.

“I think that’s a key part of the recommendation because that inquiry came out of what happened with Logan City Council.”

This will apply except in “exceptional circumstances”.

“At the heart of this report is that Queenslanders must have confidence in the corruption watchdog, which plays an integral role in our system of integrity,” Fentiman said.
