Effective today (19 February), Todd Fuller KC has been appointed Queensland Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

After being called to the Bar in 1989, Mr Fuller was appointed Crown prosecutor the same year and has served as full-time Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions since 2016.


Mr Fuller has extensive experience across every aspect of the criminal justice system at every jurisdictional level. He has appeared throughout the state, including in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Chambers based in Ipswich, as well as in significant Supreme Court criminal trials and complex matters before the Court of Appeal.

Mr Fuller is a member of the Bar Association of Queensland, serves on the university relations committee, the new bar committee, and the continuing legal education committee, and is a long-term member of the Griffith Law School visiting committee. Outside of the profession, Mr Fuller is also president of the Brisbane Hockey Association.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath congratulated Mr Fuller on his new appointment.

“For everyone in Queensland, it is in the community’s interest that those who are guilty of criminal offences are brought to justice and the innocent protected from wrongful conviction.

“The Director of Public Prosecutions plays a critical role in the process, overseeing the prosecution of criminal matters in the district and supreme courts, the Court of Appeal, the High Court of Australia and some limited Magistrates Court matters,” she said.

“Mr Fuller has been employed in various roles by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions since 1989, including exemplary service as deputy director. I believe he is ideally suited to serve as director and wish him well in his new role.”
