VISION | Police Rescuing People From Floods

Police officers have released vision showing some of the jobs they were involved in during the Townsville floods.

They utilised Townsville City Council workers and vehicles to ferry members of the public to safety during the monsoon’s heavy rainfall which eventuated in flooded roads becoming unsafe for cars to travel on.

The QPS said these were very extreme circumstances in which the risk to the lives of Queenslanders was imminent.

Below you will see some officers sharing their experiences.
