Victims Register

Proximity Searches

A proximity search is sought in the following circumstances:

  • an offender makes a request to travel interstate;
  • an prisoner/offender applies to transfer their parole order interstate;
  • an offender applies to change their address when supervised in the community;
  • a prisoner is considered for transfer to a work camp in the community; and
  • a prisoner is required to have a Home Assessment Report completed for consideration by a Parole Board prior to any release.

As part of that process, the QCS Victims Register will be contacted to ensure that no eligible person lives in proximity to the prisoner's/offender's proposed address. At no time during this process will the QCS Victims Register disclose the name or address of an eligible person. The QCS Victims Register will simply advise of concerns, if any, with the proximity of the proposed address. If applicable, this information will be included in a report to the Parole Board for their consideration.

Please notify the QCS Victims Register of a residential address change as soon as possible.

Please contact the QCS Victims Register on FREECALL 1800 098 098 or email victims.register@dcs.qld.gov.au
