New cen­tre takes com­mand

Wanneroo Times - - Crimewatch -

A NEW State Oper­a­tions Com­mand Cen­tre will serve as a “nerve cen­tre” for 15 po­lice dis­tricts across WA, ac­cord­ing to Po­lice Min­is­ter Michelle Roberts. Ms Roberts and Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Chris Daw­son (pic­tured) of­fi­cially opened the cen­tre on June 29. The cen­tre pro­vides a 24-7 over­sight of WA ac­tiv­ity, in­clud­ing statewide CCTV cov­er­age, as part of a new in­tel­li­gence and com­mand port­fo­lio. The un­veil­ing of the cen­tre comes ahead of changes to the metropoli­tan polic­ing dis­tricts on July 2. The cur­rent four dis­tricts will be in­creased to eight, with the North West Metro District split­ting into the Joon­dalup and Mirra­booka dis­tricts. Ms Roberts said the cen­tre fit in with the re­struc­ture of the WA Po­lice Force.
