LABOR has announced a law and order policy that will create a new offence which could attract life imprisonment.

In Gladstone to attend a rally against the privatisation of the port, Opposition Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk said their focus would turn away from bikies and into the broader realm of organised crime.

If elected, Labor will introduce a Commission of Inquiry into organised crime at a cost of $6 million.

Another $20 million over four years will go towards tackling organised crime, Ms Palaszczuk said.

A new offence will also be introduced under 'serious organised crime' with penalties of life imprisonment.
Ms Palaszczuk said laws would not change until the review was completed.

Labor will also meet the LNP's commitment of 300 new police officers, Ms Palaszczuk said.
