Crime Stoppers Queensland, a registered charity and community volunteer organisation with a vision of a safer community, is delighted to announce the appointment of David Hansen as Chief Executive Officer.

Hansen brings over 20 years of experience in senior management, most recently as Acting State Manager for the organisation and has been an active supporter and torch bearer for volunteers, staff and the Board of Directors.

During his time as Acting State Manager Hansen worked to enhance and promote the organisation’s invaluable anonymous crime reporting service to the community, which assisted in solving and preventing crime against individuals and the environment.

Board Chair Greg Beale OAM JP (Qual) congratulated Mr Hansen, saying, “On behalf of the Board of Directors of Crime Stoppers Queensland I welcome Mr David Hansen to the position of CEO.”

No stranger to giving his own time, David draws on more than two decades of experience as a volunteer life saver and shares the motivations of over 400 Crime Stoppers Queensland volunteers who are committed to supporting safer local communities through use of the organisation’s anonymous reporting service.

“David came to Crime Stoppers Queensland with a vast knowledge of business management thanks to his senior roles in the corporate world and, when combined with his tertiary education qualifications, this made him the preferred choice as CEO,” Beale added.

Mr Hansen reflected on the appointment, saying, “I look forward to continuing to uphold the strong values held by Crime Stoppers Queensland and to working with our team of staff and volunteers who have created such a positive culture of social responsibility for over 30 years.

Our close working relationship with the Queensland Police Service remains a priority, and I anticipate strengthening partnerships with organisations who share our vision for a safer Queensland through anonymous reporting of crime.”
