POLICE — REGIONAL
1096. Hon MARTIN ALDRIDGE to the minister representing the
Minister for Police:
I refer to the Western Australia
(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
I thank the honourable member for some notice of this
question. The following answer has been provided to me by the Minister for
(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
(2) The WA
Police Force tenure policy applies to all regional police stations. The WA
Police Force advises that there are 58 locations with no maximum tenure.
Madam President, there is a list
of 58 names. It is not in tabular form, but in the interests of question time,
I ask that the list be incorporated into Hansard.
