2022 Nine News WA Police Excellence Awards

Filmed and edited by Nine News Perth together with the Agency, the above Community Service Announcement features a recent incident that took place on the South Western Highway in March this year.

Once the Harvey police officers were notified of an accident involving a vehicle towing a caravan, they immediately sprung into action. Upon arriving at the scene, there was a sense of urgency as they discovered the vehicle was in flames. Filled with courage, determination, and every intention to rescue the couple from the burning wreckage, they saved two lives. 

“I didn’t know how they were going to come out, but I knew that I had to find a way.” - Probationary Constable Josemans, Harvey Police Station

This is a true display of excellence and commitment to protecting the WA community and is heart-warming to say the least. 

Do you know a police officer or team worthy of recognition? Nominations are now open for this year's Nine News WA Police Excellence Awards!
