Police will keep a close eye on all Queensland Anzac events

POLICE will attend or be at least monitoring all 300 Queensland ANZAC Day events on Saturday.

Although Queensland Police Commissioner Ian Stewart said uniformed police would be keeping a close eye on events across the state, he said there had been no known threats made about any events.

Mr Stewart said the threat assessment for Saturday was at medium, although nationally the threat assessment was still at high.

He said ANZAC Day was not about police security, but about ensuring people could attend ANZAC Day events.

Mr Stewart made the comments after a special students' ANZAC ceremony in ANZAC Square, Brisbane, which he, Queensland Governor Paul de Jersey and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk attended.

Ms Palaszczuk said the Islamic students who spoke at the ceremony illustrated Queensland's multiculturalism.

She said it showed regardless of people's backgrounds, everyone deserved the same rights and freedoms.
