THE truth is out there and Bundaberg man Richard Jones is determined to find it.

Mr Jones is a UFO researcher and director of the website, PoliceUFO.com which documents sightings of strange and unusual occurrences in the sky by police officers all over the world.

Mr Jones, who grew up in Bundaberg, has returned to his home town after living and researching UFOs in numerous places around the world.

Mr Jones hopes local police officers will start embracing the website which he set up four years ago, allowing Bundaberg to be part of his research.

"The Bundaberg region has a rich history of UFO events and the absence of local police speaking up represents a distinct gap in research," Mr Jones said.

"Police officers are highly credible sources that are trained to report and provide accurate recollections of events," he said.

So far among the 400 cases documented on his website, about 40 were from sightings in Australia.

"The most recent sighting in Australia was in Gosford on New Year's Eve where it appeared a UFO was being chased by a police helicopter," Mr Jones said.

Mr Jones hopes that the research he collects will lead to greater government accountability.

"I hope to pressure the government, all governments into releasing what they know about UFOs," Mr Jones said.

"If the government doesn't know something then they have the power to pressure the people that do."

Mr Jones understands that some people are sceptical of his research but he urges police officers to report any sighting of UFOs in and around Bundaberg.

Reports can be made via the website at www.PoliceUFO.com and can be made in confidence.
