The WA Police Union wants to share with you a personal story of a police officer who was seriously injured on the job.
His story highlights that injury can happen anywhere and at any time; even at a routine disturbance.
Thank you to Senior Constable Matt Butcher for sharing his story and the effect his serious injury has had on him and his young family.
He is one of the strongest supporters for a workers’ compensation style scheme for medically retired officers, and as he will tell you after being able to keep his job: “I’m one of the lucky ones”.
Even though he nearly died and sustained a permanent injury, Matt’s positivity is infectious and he is an inspiration to us all.

The 2015 WA Police Union Annual Conference was held on November 23 and 24.
The theme of the conference was "It's Tough Enough" and the focus was on two growing issues, Terrorism and Methamphetamine.
The video was produced for conference to highlight the work our Members do for the community.
