Police districts go from four to eight
NEW police districts will come into effect from July 1 to improve policing in major centres across the metropolitan area.
The number of police districts will increase from four to eight, which better align with local government and emergency management boundaries.
The new Midland district will cover Forrestfield and north of Bullsbrook, Mundaring and Ballajura.
The other districts will be Perth, Mirrabooka, Joondalup, Armadale, Cannington, Mandurah and Fremantle.
Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said the changes would help local policing.
“The new district structure will provide greater connectivity and communication with police and their local community,” he said.
