One of the men responsible for the fatal shooting of Gold Coast police officer Damian Leeding will be released on parole on Tuesday, despite a battle by the slain man's mother to keep him behind bars.
Julie Waters told Nine's Today show she wrote two letters to the Parole Board begging them not to let Benjamin Ernest Power out of jail.
She was told he would be allowed to live on the Gold Coast on the condition he wear an electronic tracking device.
"I have previously stated, I don't believe anybody involved in the murder of anybody should be released from jail, ever," Ms Waters said.
"They are just, he's a serious violent offender.
"I feel this is it for us, for the family."
Power became eligible for parole in August last year after receiving a nine-year jail term for acting as a getaway driver for accomplice and convicted murderer Phillip Graeme Abell.
Abell shot the detective senior constable in the head as he tried to stop an armed robbery at a Gold Coast tavern in May 2011.
