Are you a business owner or manager? Are you concerned about the uncertainty in these trying times?

WA Police Force Great Southern District would like to reassure businesses we are open for business and will continue to provide the high level of community support we always have, even through this event.

In order to continue to provide our high level of support, we are asking businesses to note the following:

If you have an incident to report, please use the online or telephone options listed below. All of these options are available 24 x 7 and can be accessed from the comfort of your business or home.

For Emergencies: 000

Non-urgent enquiries: Police Assistance Centre (staffed 24 x 7) 131 444

Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://www.crimestopperswa.com.au/report/

Report Stolen or damaged property (to the value of $3000): https://www.police.wa.gov.au/Police-Direct/Report-Stolen-or-Damaged-Property

Report Lost Property: https://www.police.wa.gov.au/Police-Direct/Report-My-Lost-Property

To reduce the risk of contamination to the community and our staff, please don’t attend Police stations unless absolutely necessary, most issues can be dealt with over the phone or reported online. Please maintain physical distances of at least 1.5 metres if you must come to the stations. Per WA Health Department recommendations, please stay home if you are sick, or have been directly exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19. Call your local station to discuss your options if you do need to come in.

In these trying times, we are doing our best to attend all our tasks in a timely manner. However, in order to maintain our high level of support to the community, there may be a delay in some non-urgent investigations.

Rest assured, we will continue to monitor and prioritise all incoming tasks as normal.

We are also aware these trying times will affect groups differently. We would like to remind businesses they may be at an increased risk of shoplifting and burglary offences, especially liquor outlets and higher priced grocery items in perceived short supply (e.g. meat).

Please be vigilant and report all suspicious behaviour through Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

We request any incidents of anti-social behaviour are reported to Police by telephoning 131 444 or your local station.
