WA Police Open Letter To Mark McGowan

In a recent open letter to the WA Premier, Mark McGowan, it was pointed out that there are no minimum staffing levels for police.

What does this mean to you and I? Unlike other large organisations, if ALL police at a given station call in sick, there will be no-one on duty at that station.

This results in longer response times as officers have to travel from another district to give assistance. It could mean the difference between life and death for the public in the worst-case scenario.

During the discussions with the Government, it was said that as crime has no prescribed number of occurrences, there was no need for a minimum or prescribed number of police on duty.

What absolute rubbish.
