Queensland’s top cop has accepted an invitation to today’s State Cabinet meeting to discuss the escalating youth crime crisis.

Premier Steven Miles made the unprecedented move of offering Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll a seat at the Cabinet table, to brief leaders on the critical issue.

It’s understood Ms Carroll will use the meeting to reiterate her calls for police wanding powers to be expanded.

Ms Carroll is also expected to ask the Queensland Government to revisit the trial of GPS trackers on young offenders.

It comes after Ms Carroll last week backed calls by the Queensland Police Union for more ankle monitors to be placed on serious juvenile offenders released on bail.
