    • Exhibit celebrates policing in regional Western Australia
    • More than 60,000 people are expected to attend Police Exhibition 

    Police Minister Michelle Roberts is encouraging attendees at this year's Perth Royal Show to make the Police Exhibition a must see.

     

    This year's theme 'Policing in Regional WA' focuses on the diverse work undertaken by police officers stationed in remote Western Australia.

     

    The display includes information, photographs, and personal accounts provided by current and past regional WA police officers.

     

    The WA Police Force has been exhibiting at the Royal Show since 1996.

     

    The exhibition will also feature displays set up by WA Police Legacy and the Constable Care Child Safety Foundation.

     

    Other activities and opportunities for visitors include:

    • A photo opportunity on a police motorcycle and/or in a police car;
    • Daily Constable Care shows at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm; and
    • A kids colouring-in competition including daily prize packs to be won. 

    The Police Exhibition will also include information for those interested in joining the WA Police Force.

     

    Last year, 65,000 people attended the Police Exhibition over the eight days.

     

    Comments attributed to Police Minister Michelle Roberts:

     

    "Being a country cop is not always like what you see on the television shows - it can be a difficult and challenging role, but it can also be extremely rewarding.

     

    "Come and see how our police officers live and work in WA's remote and regional areas and hear firsthand some of the stories about what it is like.

     

    "Police will also showcase some of the technology they use to help keep the community safe.

     

    "The Police Exhibition is also a great opportunity to meet police, find out more about police work and see if you're up to the challenge of being a police officer in our great State."
