The Queensland Water Police vessel, the PV Brett T Handran will again be on display at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 24-27 May.

This 23.35m vessel is used for training and exercises and was a base in the January 2011 Brisbane floods.

Senior Sergeant Lucas Young said exhibiting at the boat show was the opportunity for the public to get onboard and see first-hand the high-tech capabilities of the water police, discuss water craft safety or find out how to become a police officer.

'We will be showcasing the role of the water police and our assets and capabilities,' he explains. 'We welcomed more than 2000 people onboard last year and the feedback was all positive. This is the public’s only chance to see an operational police vessel, which is a new member of fleet.'

Named in honour of a Detective who lost his life in the line of duty in 1989 in Wynnum, the PV Brett T Handran is used in search and rescue operations, including during the Brisbane floods and far north in Innisfail and Cairns during Cyclone Yasi.

'It’s a water borne command centre,' continues Senior Sergeant Young. 'People are always impressed with the range and capability of the vessel, which is also used on the Gold Coast for events like GC 600 and Schoolies Week and other major police operations.'



The vessel is approximately 24 metres long and 9 metres wide, accommodates up to 12 police for extended operations. 'It has the range to travel to New Zealand and provide support for other specialised units. The vessel has conducted intercepts up to 100nm offshore, such as illegal fishing, drug couriering and other activity.'

During the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, visitors will be able to tour the vessel at regular times and speak with police officers about its capabilities as well as learning more about opportunities in the Queensland Police Service.

The 24th Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is proudly sponsored by Club Marine. Exhibitor details, ticket information, accommodation packages and updated news about the 2012 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show are available at www.sanctuarycoveboatshow.com.au
