When Mrs Harvey announced the new station in February, she said while police would work from the station 24 hours a day, it would be open to the public only during business hours.

According to Mrs Saffioti, electronic signboards positioned throughout the hotly contested West Swan electorate stating ‘Liberal for 24-hr 7-day police station’ make it now a broken promise.

In her response in Parliament, Mrs Harvey confirmed the new station would not offer a 24-hour counter service.

She later told the Reporter she was unaware of the signboards until last week and that it was ‘unfortunate’ the words used could have misled the public.

With the federal poll looming, we will be working to hold our political parties to account.
