Handling of police complaints

WA Police carry out an important, but difficult job. As a profession, police suffer disproportionate levels of stress, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide.

Police also have a range of extraordinary powers. While these powers are ordinarily used legitimately, it is important for protecting the integrity of the police force that there is a robust, independent and reliable way to respond to police complaints.

Privacy legislation vital

The lack of privacy legislation in Western Australia means there are inadequate protections for people’s rights to privacy. It also means WA is missing out on opportunities to participate in important research programs, which arise from the sharing of data across jurisdictions.
