Gosnells Police Tour July 2018

City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst has welcomed changes to Gosnells Police Station, saying it will strengthen local police presence and enhance the way they do their jobs.

Mayor Dewhurst, Deputy Mayor Terresa Lynes, Councillor Julie Jones and district police were given a tour of the facility by Gosnells Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Jodie Pearson.

Snr Sgt Pearson highlighted the changes, saying the facility had undergone important changes to accommodate more police and improve efficiencies in their day-to-day operations.

“This new set-up increases the capacity for more officers to be based in Gosnells and enables them to have greater control for special operations,” said Mayor Dewhurst, a former police officer.

“The City of Gosnells and local police have worked together on a variety of community safety and crime prevention initiatives over the years and these changes will allow us to reinforce our very positive and productive relationship.”

The City assisted the refurbishment by resurfacing adjacent land to provide officers with an improved area for car parking.
