Obstructing Police

If you obstruct police, you could be charged with a criminal offence.

What is Obstructing Police?

Obstructing police is a criminal offence in QLD. This means that if you hinder police in the course of their work, you may be charged with obstructing police.

This means that it’s a good idea to comply with any reasonable directions of the police. You do, however, have the right to remain silent, and the right to contact a lawyer.

If you are being investigated by the police, or if you’ve been arrested or charged, it is a good idea to seek legal assistance as early as possible. Until you speak with a lawyer, it’s advisable to exercise your right to remain silent.
