Question Without Notice No. 938 asked in the Legislative Council on 11 October 2018 by Hon Charles Smith

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on


938. Hon CHARLES SMITH to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer to the 2017 Western Australian Police Union resourcing, safety, and workload survey.

(1) How many computer-aided dispatch jobs were written off in the last 30 days without police physically attending the scene?

(2) How many jobs received at police communications in the last 30 days were recorded at the time of the complaint as having no car to attend?


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

(1)–(2) Not applicable. The Western Australian Police Union survey, titled ''Resourcing, Safety, Workload'', received 1 086 responses when it closed at 4.00 pm on 16 January 2017. The survey was conducted during the final days of the previous Liberal–National government, when the member for Scarborough was the Minister for Police. The questions have no bearing to the survey.
