Speed fine for top cop

The West Australian - - NEWS -

Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Chris Daw­son has been pinged speed­ing 9km/h over the limit.

He was snapped by a speed cam­era while driv­ing at 59km/h in a 50km/h zone in his per­sonal ve­hi­cle on Plain Street in East Perth on Septem­ber 28.

Mr Daw­son was on his way to the Na­tional Po­lice Re­mem­brance Day Ser­vice at the Po­lice Academy in Joon­dalup.

In a state­ment re­leased by WA Po­lice yes­ter­day, he said he paid the $100 fine as soon as he re­ceived it.

No de­merit points were is­sued for the in­fringe­ment and Mr Daw­son con­firmed he has no de­merit points on his driver’s li­cence.

“As Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, I am very aware of the con­se­quences of speed­ing and I ac­knowl­edge my mis­take,” he said in the state­ment.

“Speed­ing is a fo­cus of our traf­fic en­force­ment ef­fort and this re­in­forces that no one is im­mune from be­ing caught.”
