In late 2009, the Queensland Police Service (QPS) Metropolitan North District initiated a partnership response to high risk families, involving young people with frequent police contacts. This partnership response involved an 18 month planning phase and saw the initial implementation of a pilot program in mid 2011 prior to the termination of the project in the second half of 2011. This report is designed to capture the experiences of the Family Engagement Strategy (FES) pilot program, and to inform a future approach to FES which is expected to be developed in 2012. The report is structured in four parts. Part 1 provides an overview of the background and nature of the FES model. Part 2 introduces the FES pilot program and the families initially recruited for participation. Part 3 summarises findings from the face-to-face interviews with 17 key agency stakeholders which were conducted following the close out of the program. Part 4 draws some conclusions and makes some key recommendations.
