The union released Project Recompense to highlight the need for a compensation scheme for medically retired police officers and is urging action.
There were 14 recommendations to the government to provide officers cover because they were exempt from the Workers� Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981.
WAPU president George Tilbury said the government had left police without workers� compensation for too long.
�Police officers in Western Australia are the only officers in the country not covered by workers� compensation,� he said. �Officers should be fairly compensated for any injuries sustained during work.�
Medically Retired WA Police Officer Association secretary David Nelson was medically retired as a 33-year-old senior constable in 1993.
He was diagnosed with work-attributed post traumatic stress disorder in August this year, which means the State Insurance Commission Risk Cover will finally cover related medical expenses. The diagnosis came after years of flashbacks.
�When people are retired medically with psychological issues, we never work again and the people left to pick up the pieces are our families,� he said.
Police Minister Liza Harvey said WA Police were looking in to a compensation scheme.
�WA Police is looking at issues around the establishment of a comprehensive workers� compensation scheme,� she said.
Ms Harvey said the State Government supported officers.
�The Government looks after its police officers; it was this government that introduced the retired officers medical expenses scheme, mandatory sentencing for assaulting a police officer, and mandatory blood testing of offenders who bite and spit at police,� she said.
Mr Nelson said more needed to be done.
�This system abandons you. We are sick of police fighting for sick police,� he said.
