- New $8m Mundijong station opens its doors
- Latest in a string of new police stations to be opened across WA
The Liberal National Government today reaffirmed its commitment to keep communities safe by opening the new $8 million Mundijong police station.
Deputy Premier and Police Minister Liza Harvey said the Mundijong station was the latest in a long list of new and refurbished stations to be opened across Western Australia since 2008.
"The $8 million Mundijong station will not only accommodate the current Mundijong Local Policing Teams, it will be able to cope with up to 30 years of growth in the region," Ms Harvey said.
The Deputy Premier said the new station could accommodate up to 30 officers and up to 44 officers with minor modifications.
"This new station will cater for future policing needs, population growth, local land developments, increased tourism, high demand for police services by the general public and the ongoing police service to the expanding communities between Armadale and Mundijong," she said.
"This particular station site also allows us to conduct major modifications to further increase officer capacity in the decades to come."
The new facility will include office and meeting areas, charge room and interview rooms for processing detainees, storage, staff amenities room, gymnasium and locker/shower facilities.
The building incorporates some significant sustainability initiatives which include a 30 kilowatt solar power system, an advanced solar hot water system and sensor controlled LED lighting throughout.
"The Liberal National Government is committed to making our communities safer through tough laws and providing police with the resources they need to combat crime and anti-social behaviour," Ms Harvey said.
- The Mundijong station was built by Western Australian company Universal Constructions Pty Ltd
- Since 2008, the Liberal National Government has built 19 new and refurbished police stations across the State with a total investment of $262 million
