  • Expanded Yanchep Police Station will have capacity to accommodate 4 times as many officers

Police Minister Michelle Roberts and Butler MLA John Quigley today inspected plans for the expanded Yanchep Police Station.

“This will be a significant upgrade from the old facility, with the capacity to accommodate 4 times as many officers.” Minister for Police Michelle Roberts said.

Upgrade will include:

  • Dedicated operations room,
  • Interview facilities,
  • Modern facilities for staff,
  • New detainee holding room.

Yanchep Police Station no longer meets the needs of the fast growing region and the expansion works are needed to accommodate the allocation of extra officers.

“Suburbs in the northern corridor have seen incredible growth in recent years and this upgrade is about meeting the future demands of the community.” Butler MLA John Quigley said.

Works are expected to be completed by later this year.
