Acting Premier and Police Minister Liza Harvey said the safety and security of Ballajura residents was a high priority for the State Government.

“With this new station, the Ballajura Local Policing Teams will have a greater presence in the community and continue their great work addressing the issues that matter to residents.” Acting Premier Harvey said.

Acting Premier Harvey said the new station could accommodate up to 40 officers and had been constructed to increase capacity for future growth.

“The new facility includes office and meeting areas, charge and interview rooms for processing detainees, storage, a staff amenities room, gymnasium and locker facilities.” Acting Premier Harvey said.

“This project not only reflects the Government’s commitment to law and order for the residents in the Ballajura area, but has been replicated all over Western Australia where new and refurbished stations have been constructed for our Police officers.”

Acting Premier Harvey said since 2013, new and refurbished stations had been opened at:

  • Cockburn Central Police Station (new station)

  • Mundijong Police Station (new station)
  • Eucla Police Station (new station)
  • Augusta Police Station (new station)
  • Waroona Police Station (new station)
  • Yalgoo Police Station (new station)
  • Three Springs Police Station (major refurbishment)

“We are dedicated to making communities safer through tough laws and providing police with the tools they need to combat crime and anti-social behaviour.” Acting Premier Harvey said.
