Domestic violence survivor wants officer who leaked address sacked

Domestic violence survivor wants officer who leaked address sacked
A domestic violence survivor says the Queensland police commissioner should have sacked a senior constable for leaking her address to her allegedly violent former partner.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, says she had hoped the newly appointed Commissioner Katarina Carroll would take a stand against violence against women.

"It's disgraceful (she) is not taking a stand against domestic violence and (she is) certainly not taking a stand to show other QPS members that this is not permitted," the woman told reporters today.
The woman made her comments outside the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, where the Queensland Police Service asked for more time to appeal an earlier finding it was liable for the privacy breach.
