Civilian at centre of $1m police union funds probe

QUEENSLAND police are investigating the alleged theft of up to $1 million in their union's funds.

The Queensland Police Union executive uncovered the missing funds during a routine audit.

A civilian finance officer "who is alleged to have made improper transactions on the QPU's accounts" is now under the spotlight.

Police investigators were brought in, with the matter also reported to the Queensland Industrial Registry and the union's insurers.

The union has also engaged corporate lawyers to freeze the assets of the alleged offender, and injunctions have been issued.
