Queensland Police Records and Information Management Exchange (QPRIME) captures administrative and intelligence information to support policing activities and Information Management.

DEFINITION OF FAMILY AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Family and domestic violence is defined by the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012. Behaviours include threatened or actual wilful injury, wilful damage to the other person’s property (including pets), intimidation or harassment of the other person and indecent behaviour towards the other person without consent, where the two parties are in a domestic relationship. Behaviours do not need to be committed directly by the person committing the Domestic Violence.

The summary table below is designed to indicate the amount of information available for each of the six elements outlined in Defining the Data Challenge for Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence, 2013 (cat. no. 4529.0). This is a subjective assessment made by the ABS about the data collected and is not an indication of data quality.

Tables are absent from the entry in cases where the data source contains no data items which relate to the particular counting unit/s.
Please note: This data source does not contain any data items relevant to this counting unit.
After becoming aware of an offence the reporting officer contacts the Information and Communications Technology Command (ICT) by telephone as soon as practicable. A twenty-four hour data entry service exists within ICT to facilitate this process. The offence is then recorded in QPRIME, classified and counted by the data entry staff. This process provides the benefits of reducing police officers’ administrative workloads as well as providing an accurate and immediate computerised record of crimes.
