Police at ‘breaking point’
A new police survey shows nearly 90% believe staffing levels are inadequate in their area, as their workloads continue to increase.
It has prompted WA Police Union president George Tilbury to again call for an additional 1,100 police officers to address the growing pressures.
He’s told The Morning Show’s Gareth Parker, many officers feel overwhelmed by the growing demand on them.
Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan has also spoken with The Morning Show’s Gareth Parker, saying he agrees with some of the union’s calls.
