Bundaberg police officer, Sergeant Meg Owens, will receive the Australian Police Medal (APM) and will be nationally honoured for her distinguished service.

Sergeant Owens has been recognised for her leadership, professionalism and expertise in investigative practices over her 28 year policing career.

Sergeant Owens joined the QPS in August 1989, with her first posting as a First Year Constable (FYC) in the Brisbane metro area before transferring to Ipswich and Goodna where she commenced work in the Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB).

After four years she moved to the warmer climate of Townsville where she continued to hone her investigative skills in the CIB, obtaining her Detective's appointment.

In January 2000 it was time for another change, and she made the decision to move to Bundaberg and has called it home ever since.

Over the past 18 years, Sergeant Owens has continued to demonstrate her commitment to policing and her dedication to helping the community with involvement as the Adaopt-A-Cop at Saint Lukes Anglican College, the coordinator for the Working Tourist Safety Forum and her mentoring and guidance provided to the students at the Tom Quinn Centre… just to name a few.

Police Commissioner Ian Stewart acknowledged Sergeant Owens by congratulating her with a personal phone call on Monday.  

Sergeant Owens will be presented with this prestigious award at an upcoming ceremony in Brisbane.
