LOGAN District Chief Superintendent Brian Swan is one of four newly appointed assistant commissioners for Queensland.

Commissioner Katarina Carroll today announced the appointments saying she looked forward to working with them in their new roles on the QPS executive leadership team.

"The Queensland Police Service is undergoing an important transformation with the service alignment program to better align resources based on capability and service delivery.

"I know these highly regarded officers will be valuable members of the executive leadership team, as we steer the organisation through significant change," she said.

Chief Superintendent Swan started his police career as a cadet in 1984 and was later inducted as a first-year constable in 1985.

He is highly regarded for his leadership and excellence in organisational improvement and operational planning, particularly as they apply to the field of criminal investigations. He has been recognised for his work with the Queensland Homicide Victims Support Group and the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council.

He was honoured for his service in June 2018 when he received the Australian Police Medal.

Other officers who were promoted included Chief Superintendent for Gold Coast District Mark Wheeler, Acting Assistant Commissioner for Crime and Intelligence Katherine Innes, and Acting Assistant Commissioner for Operations Support Brian Connors.

The assistant commissioners will take up their new positions in the next month.

Further announcements regarding an additional assistant commissioner appointment and the placement of all assistant commissioners will be made soon.
