POLICE — REGIONAL STATIONS

1096. Hon MARTIN ALDRIDGE to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer to the Western Australia Police Force.

(1) How are the 55 police stations and 12 multifunction centres where officers pay no rent for government housing determined and reviewed from time to time?

(2) Which police stations in regional WA does the police officer tenure policy not apply to?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of this question. The following answer has been provided to me by the Minister for Police.

(1) The Western Australia Police Force advises that 55 police stations and 12 multifunction police facilities with free rent have been included in the various industrial agreements with the WA Police Union since 2007.
