WA Police Union president George Tilbury has praised WA Labor’s pledge to bolster police numbers and called on the Liberals to match it.
Labor announced yesterday, if elected, it would deliver 670 extra police officers by 2017-18, as well as three new police stations.
Mr Tilbury said he was pleased Labor had revealed its commitment and made law and order a priority.
“While we wanted 800 extra officers over the next four years, we know 670 will make inroads to helping police become more proactive in solving crimes and assisting the community,” he said.Mr Tilbury said he now wanted a commitment from the Liberal and National parties.
