One of Queensland’s top cops dies suddenly

THE Queensland Police Service is mourning one of its own after one of the state’s top cops died unexpectedly on Saturday.

Acting Chief Superintendent Paul Ziebarth is believed to have suffered a massive heart attack at a Brisbane go-karting track yesterday morning and could not be revived.

Colleagues said Supt Ziebarth, aged in his early 50s, had complained of feeling unwell in recent weeks.

The career cop had spent more than 30 years in the Queensland Police Service.

He was serving as acting Chief Superintendent for the South Brisbane police district after a career which included stints as officer-in-charge of the Gold Coast police district, commanding events including Schoolies.

He is the second senior South Brisbane police officer to die suddenly of a heart attack this year. Inspector Rod Kemp died in February while on his way to his own retirement lunch.

Assistant Commissioner Brian Codd said Supt Ziebarth’s death was a great tragedy for his family and the QPS.

“He was very well-known and very well-respected in the QPS,’’ Mr Codd said.

Acting Superintendent Paul Zeibarth suddenly passed away this afternoon.

Sometimes through my community work i come across people who are not afraid to think outside the square and more importantly willing to address tough issues with empathy.

Paul was one such man. An example of this was a program he introduced few years ago where he organised convicts of carjacking to go through a certificate course in Automotive and had them fix the cars of people who they stole from.

He was working with Islamic council of Queensland to organise a similar program for the youth who have had drug or other crime issues.

Our condolences to his family and loved ones. It’s a huge loss to Queensland police service and all our communities.

Gold Coast police district Superintendent Paul Ziebarth says crime has dropped 20 per cent in the past decade

GOLD Coast crime is falling and Glitter Strip residents can sleep safe at night, senior police insist.

They also say police are “all over the bikies like a seagull on a hot chip”.

“The reality is sometimes different from the perception,” Gold Coast police district Superintendent Paul Ziebarth said. “Over the last 10 years, there’s been roughly a 20 per cent drop in crime across the board.

“While there is always going to be more crime than we’d like, the reality is that crime in many categories is less than half of what it was 10 years ago.

“People can feel safe in their beds.”

While overall crime in the South Eastern police region increased 11 per cent in 2011-12 against a state average of 6 per cent, the Gold Coast district recorded only a 1 per cent rise.

Senior police pointed out that most major crimes on the Coast, including the recent bikie incidents, were quickly solved.

“We’re locking up a lot of people, particularly for serious crime,” Chief Superintendent Steve Hollands said.

Since its formation in the wake of the 2011 slaying of police officer Damian Leeding, the Coast’s Major and Organised Crime Squad had arrested 320 offenders on 1026 charges, seized more than $1.2 million in cash and criminal assets, smashed 16 drug labs and taken dozens of guns off the streets.

Another taskforce targeting repeat property crime offenders had arrested 463 people on 2157 charges.

Since January last year, more than 400 bikies had been arrested on almost 1100 charges.

This week, police arrested nine Finks over the June 8 Coolangatta brawl and nabbed another 16 members in a traffic blitz targeting the gang’s Molendinar clubhouse.

“We can’t stop these groups from setting up here but we can certainly make it uncomfortable for them,” another Coast police superintendent, Ben Hanbidge, said.

New initiatives including a 15-member ‘mobile deployment squad’ to target crime hot spots would further boost the fight against Coast crime, the top cops said.

“There’s a lot of ill-informed comment from people who want to denigrate the Gold Coast image but it’s still a great, safe place to live,” Supt Ziebarth said.
