POLICE — OFFICERS ASSAULTED
      205. Hon CHARLES SMITH to the minister representing the Minister for Police:
With the Minister for Police's rejection of the WA Police Union's call to equip frontline staff with stab‑proof vests, and with the increasing trend of assaults against the person, can the minister advise of the number of police officers who have submitted incident reports alleging an assault against them in the last 12 months?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided by the Minister for Police.
The Minister for Police has not received a request from WA Police for additional stab‑proof vests. I would request that the member put the question about incident reports on notice.
