QPS ‘Spread Warmth’ for Mother’s Day

Together, the Queensland Police Service (QPS) Spread the Warmth for Mother’s Day by donating new bath robes to mums fleeing domestic violence and living in crisis accommodation.

From the combined efforts of staff around Brisbane, QPS collected over 100 bath robes.

Commissioner Katarina Carroll said that the prevalence of domestic and family violence (DFV) in the community is significant, with our police attending over 260 DFV related calls for service each day.

“I would like to thank the Queensland Police Service’s, Domestic, Family Violence and Vulnerable Persons Command for coordinating this collection as it provides victims with some much needed comfort in a time of need,” Commissioner Carroll said.

Acting Inspector Mel Dwyer presented the QPS donation to the Brisbane Domestic Violence Service last Friday, May 7.

Spread the Warmth is an initiative of Brisbane Domestic Violence Service and just one of the many community activities being supported by our members around the state as part of Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month this May.
