Bali Bombing Anniversary

The Bali bombings of 2002 had a devastating impact upon our community, including WA Police Force officers who were at the holiday island in a private capacity, and officers who were deployed to assist with the subsequent investigation.

A number of officers who were at Bali in a private capacity put their own lives at risk to help those injured in the blasts.

Tragically, a number of WA Police Force employees lost loved ones as a result of the terrorist attacks.

WA Police Force had a strong contribution to the international police investigation that followed the bombings. 

Critically, this included forensic experts who specialised in disaster victim identification. This process of identifying victims enabled grieving families to put their loved ones to rest.

WA Police Force pays tribute to the lives lost in the Bali bombings. May they rest in peace.
