- Media and issues management
- Internal communication
- Proactive communications, events and marketing projects

- Operational support to investigations through media liaison, social media and multimedia production

The Media Unit manages public messaging during police related emergencies, and provides a liaison point for the media at emergency and crime scenes. Providing information directly to the public is also a key part of the duties and this is achieved through social media and the WA Police website.
To find out which district Facebook page or local Twitter account you should be following, please search for your suburb.
For all media enquiries email Police Media or phone 08 9222 1011 between the hours of 6.00am to 6.00pm.
WA Police regularly receives requests for assistance in filming across a range of projects.
While each request is based on its merit, it is often not feasible or practical for WA Police to engage in these types of proposals as the first consideration must always be the benefit to be gained by WA Police compared to the time and involvement of public resources.
To enquire about or seek approval for WA Police to participate in filming email Police Media.
Approval to use the WA Police Logo
The Western Australia Police logo is one of the most recognisable symbols and represents the values and conducts that Western Australian community members have come to trust and depend upon.
To ensure community confidence in WA Police remains strong, it is imperative the logo and affiliated branding is managed appropriately and not misused.
The WA Police logo may not be used without the written approval of the WA Police. All requests to use the WA Police logo are to be emailed to Corporate Communications Branch SMAIL.
Pipe Band enquiries
The award winning WA Police Pipe Band provides a proactive image and community engagement tool for WA Police, helping to showcase a different side of policing through the power of music and positive interaction. The band attends more than 240 policing and public events each year.
