Morley police station’s 30 staff members will be relocated to the Mirrabooka station during the renovations from Monday, February 3, until completion in December.

Snr Sgt Hooper said the renovations included an expansion of the station’s operational area by about 30 per cent and improvements to the change room and other areas.

‘There will also be a refit of the infrastructure to improve security and operational capability,’ he said.

‘This will give greater flexibility and scope for officers to operate out of the station in the future, meeting any changing needs or priorities in the community.’

According to Snr Sgt Hooper, the improvements are a positive move by WA Police, underlining its present and future commitment to quality service provision to the Morley sub-district community.

‘It is part of a larger plan that will roll out policing benefits to the community serviced by Bayswater police, Scarborough police and Mirrabooka police, which are the other stations that make up the West Metropolitan Police District,’ he said.

Snr Sgt Hooper assured residents policing in the Morley sub-district during the renovations would not be effected.

‘The community can expect continued quality policing services with police still maintaining a full presence in the Morley sub-district and responding to calls for assistance through the 131 444 number,’ he said.

‘Anyone needing to attend a station front counter can attend Bayswater or Kiara police stations during normal business hours or Mirrabooka as the 24-hour complex.’
