AAP logoAAP 10/10/2016

Queensland's acting Assistant Commissioner Debbie Platz has been crowned the International Association of Women Police Officer of the Year.

Ms Platz received the award at a luncheon in Barcelona, Spain on Sunday and it's the second year in a row a Queensland officer has been recognised.

Last year, Queensland's Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Katarina Carroll received the Leadership Award for her time as a QPS Assistant Commissioner.

Police Commissioner Ian Stewart nominated Platz, saying "her 30 years policing experience, academic achievements, strengths, professionalism, willingness to share and mentor is outstanding."
