National Police Remembrance Day
NPRD - 29 September
Each year on the 29 September, policing jurisdictions across Australia celebrate National Police Remembrance Day (NPRD). This is a solemn day of remembrance for police officers and their families to remember those members who have been killed in the line of duty. CSP actively supports the Queensland Police Service and attends many of the commemorative services across Queensland including those at the Queensland Police Memorial in Brisbane.
annual NPRD Wall to Wall motorcycle ride
The ride attracts riders and followers from across Australia. The riders time their arrival into the NSW city of Goulburn and as a united team of riders proceed onto the National Police Memorial in Canberra. This event is a unique policing event and is supported by many members of the Queensland Police Service and CSP members.
annual Blue Ribbon fundraising
CSP, the Queensland Police Service, and Queensland Police Legacy support the annual Blue Ribbon fundraising initiative across Queensland. CSP has actively supported this initiative by each year purchasing a large quantity of blue and white checked fabric commemorative ribbons. These ribbons are distributed to police stations and government establishments prior to NPRD. Ribbons are not sold but donations are regularly given by the community to assist families of officers who may have died or been killed in the line of duty over the past year.
The Blue Ribbon Committee shares one third of donations received each year with a worthy Queensland charity. This is another example of CSP interacting with community groups to share the CSP message.

Helping Hand Fund
.In 2006, following the devastating impact on north Queensland caused by Tropical Cyclone Larry, a number of CSP members and senior members of the Queensland Police Service founded the CSP Helping Hand Fund. This fund is registered with the ACNC and offers tax deductibility status for any QPS member making regular payroll deductions.
The Helping Hand Fund aims to render aid and assistance to members of the Queensland Police Service and their immediate families who are faced with serious, terminal or life-threatening events.
A give now Community fundraising button is provided below for any person wishing to assist this fund.
Any QPS member wishing to contact the CSP Helping Hand Fund should email HelpingHandFund@police.qld.gov.au or their local Chaplain or Human Services Officer.
CSP Welfare Housing
The QPS together with CSP provide nine (8) emergency facilities throughout Qld. for members of the QPS family. The accommodation is available in times of emergency, including medical, bereavement, recuperation and other family crisis. These facilities remain the property of the QPS.
Regional HSO Personnel and the Police Chaplaincy Service are responsible for allocating members into this accommodation. Alternative accommodation can be arranged through the Police Chaplaincy Service if the emergency accommodation is full.
CSP supplies all furnishing, fitting, linen, white goods, kitchen equipment and regularly cleaned and ensures all Utility Accounts are paid.
As CSP is a voluntary organisation, donations from members of the police family and the community are welcome and appreciated.
CSP working in conjunction with the Police Chaplaincy ensure all facilities are maintained to a high level. Members using these facilities are encouraged to report all faults and maintenance issues through the Police Chaplaincy Service.
It is evident the use of emergency accommodation requires constant fundraising and support by members of the QPS family and the community. CSP conducts a number of fund raising initiatives to support the emergency accommodation.
Money can be raised through payroll deductions, any donations are appreciated.
CSP Accommodation in Brisbane
Community Supporting Police provide emergency accommodation for Police and their families. All residences have been made available by the Queensland Police Service to provide emergency accommodation to police and their immediate families in times of crisis and trauma.
Currently, CSP manages four units, 2 at Bowen Hills, Woolloongabba, Annerley and Toowong.
Community fund-raising is central to the success of the CSP, and community support is available in many ways.
Funds raised by the organisation help to maintain these facilities.
The occupancy rate for all emergency accommodation is quite high, over 80% all year round, which reflects the ongoing need for such facilities across the State.

Facilities are also located in Toowoomba, Townsville, Rockhampton, and Cairns, which are managed through the local Branch of CSP.
