Speaking on ABC Radio Brisbane on Tuesday, Inspector Jeff Coote, who is in charge of the Brisbane watch house, said Ms Tilberoo's death in custody was "tragic" and "there's always a lesson to be learnt."

"We will take on board any lessons that come from the Coroner, certainly Ethical Standards Command will likely have some recommendations as well," he said.

Inspector Coote said if someone was brought into the watch house, they should be checked every 60 minutes, regardless of whether they were awake or asleep, to ensure they are breathing and comfortable, with each check logged in the police computer system.

"All of my staff here treat the people who come to the watchhouse as they expect one of their own family members to be treated," he said.

"If it was one of my family members here, I would have an expectation that they would be checked thoroughly at a minimum of 60 minutes to check they're breathing and comfortable."

He said the watch house was no place for a sick person.

"When someone first comes into the watch house, we assess them and ask them a number of health questions — developed with Queensland Health," he said.

"If they have any suspicions they will contact the doctor they have or take them to hospital."

He said he was constrained in what he could say but said "there's a reason why an assistant watch house officer has been suspended".

"First of all, our condolences to the family of Aunty Sherry," she said.

"What now happens is there is a coronial investigation and then there is full investigation, which is a review done by Ethical Standards [with] CCC oversight.

"Both of those are done in tandem."
