Customer Question
Hi I am wondering...

Hi I am wondering if the police are investigating me can they put cameras in, around or outside my home without notifying me. I live in Queensland.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have they talked to a Queensland lawyer about this?

Do you mean have they notified my lawyer?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have they taken so far?

I have been questioned by the police and there is an investigation under way but that is all I have been told

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I don’t think so

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Allegations have been made against me accusing me of having a relationship with a 15 year old I am 22. I work at a school as a teacher aide and have been suspended from work for 5 weeks now
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

This would not provide sufficient grounds for the police to place camera's around your property.

can you see the camera's anywhere ?

would you like to talk on the phone ?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No I can’t see cameras anywhere I was just wondering. I have been questioned but that is all. Is there a time period that the investigation can go on for?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
What would give them sufficient grounds. This police woman has been very deceiving so far and I just want to know my rights and what I am up against.
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

Investigations can be indefinite, only if the the state provides the funding. Where there is no crime, and only allegations raised, there may be monitoring for a few weeks only.

Would you like to have a chat on the phone. ?

Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

you have a rights to protect yourself, it really depends on the facts, can you tell me more about the allegations, or if you prefer we can talk in the phone too for privacy.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I’m not available to talk on the phone at the moment sorry. But they can’t put cameras around my home from what I’ve told you. The allegations are coming from a third party the student that the allegations are about is also saying they are false and so is his guardian. I am family friends with this person and have been with his family for many years
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

That is correct. The police cannot enter your property and put cameras to monitor you.
