While there is no requirement for members to become volunteers, all members interested in doing so are very welcome. Volunteers play a major part in many tasks undertaken by the FQPM and the Queensland Police Museum. These tasks can include researching specific historic projects, contributing to fundraising through FQPM merchandising stalls at scheduled events and assessing conservation work on Queensland Police historic objects.
In some cases we have teams of volunteers working on particular projects and this is considered beneficial as volunteers enjoy the social aspect of volunteering as well as the satisfaction of a job well done.
Volunteer work is on an ‘as required’ basis and volunteers will be sought for specific projects and tasks through the FQPM website.
Volunteer/s Needed for Sam Johnson Biography
We are still seeking a keen volunteer/s to undertake the task of researching and documenting the biography of Police Tracker, Sam Johnson. Sam had quite a long career with the Queensland Police, yet his known biographical details are somewhat fragmented and to be found in a number of repositories.
The FQPM is committed to documenting a detailed biography of Sam Johnson’s life following the work undertaken by the Friends’ in erecting a headstone and slab on Sam Johnson’s grave site at the Longreach Cemetery and re-dedicated the site on the 29 September 2015.
The FQPM is therefore seeking volunteer/s who would be prepared to research and record Sam’s biography. Should you be interested in undertaking this project, please contact the FQPM Secretary.
