As a part of our commitment to continuous improvement, WA Police Force Licensing Services website has been restructured and renewed.

A part of this new site is this Blog, which we will use to update members of the public about various firearms licensing matters such as legislative changes that may be amended or pending, policy changes or amendment to current processes for licensing of firearms in Western Australia.
