The following can be attributed to WA Police Union President George Tilbury:

Despite media reports that a final decision has been made on stab proof ballistic vests, WAPU has had no confirmation that they will be issued. Discussions between WA Police, the State Government and WAPU are continuing.

WAPU will continue our work to rule safety campaign until such time as we have a written commitment to provide police officers with stab proof ballistic vests and a commitment for more troops on the frontline.

The work to rule safety campaign is not linked to pay.

The safety of Members is our utmost priority and we will continue to work with WA Police and the State Government to find the most appropriate body armour for our conditions and requirements.
