    Acting Police Minister John Bowler said Cabinet had approved five-year extensions to the contracts of Western Australia’s Police Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner.

    Mr Bowler said Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan and his deputy Chris Dawson were doing an outstanding job in leading the WA Police Service and their contract extensions demonstrated they enjoyed the full support of the State Government.

    “The people of WA are being well served by this professional management team and I look forward to them continuing to build on their success,” he said.

    Mr Bowler said the quality of leadership demonstrated by Commissioner O’Callaghan and Deputy Commissioner Dawson had led the Government to increase the length of their contracts from three to five years.
