Weapons in Court Win

Handcuffs, extendable batons and police radios will be permitted for police entering WA court buildings for hearings but not pepper spray, tasers or guns under a freshly-worked out agreement.

Chief-Justice Wayne Martin says the revised arrangements are the result of consultation with the Department of the Attorney-General, WA Police and the state’s Police Union.  

WA Police Union President George Tilbury says the changes are a step in the right direction.

He spoke with Adam Shand.
