The Archdiocese of Brisbane is committed to fostering a culture where people are encouraged to raise concerns and can do so safely.

The Archdiocese strongly encourages anyone who suspects criminal conduct by Archdiocesan personnel to report the matter directly to the Queensland Police Service.

Criminal Offence – Failure to Report Belief of Child Sexual Offence

(Criminal Code – Section 229BC)

In Queensland, an adult commits a crime if they:

  • have a reasonable belief that another adult;
  • is committing (in the present) or has committed (in the past) a child sexual offence; and
  • the adult fails to disclose the information to a police officer as soon as reasonably practicable;
  • unless they have a reasonable excuse for not reporting it to the police.

(Maximum penalty – 3 years imprisonment)

** If a child is in immediate danger or risk of harm, contact the police directly and without delay. **
