Commissioner announces record number of recruits
Commissioner of WA Police Chris Dawson announces the addition of 800 new police recruits over the next four years.
This is the largest increase on record, and is expected to result in WA having the highest number of police officers per person of all states.
This is on top of the 300 new police officers already being delivered by the government.
The injection of new recruits will strengthen the police frontline, with more cops on the beat to keep our community safe.
A $314 million investment, this will result in an increase in the police presence across Western Australia.
