Build Police Station in Dalyellup NOT Capel

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


We want the new police station built in Dalyellup, not Capel.

Within the Shire of Capel, Dalyellup has:

  • The largest population;
  • Greatest projected population growth; and
  • Highest crime rate.

Capel has:

  • The lowest population;
  • Lowest projected population growth; and
  • Lowest crime rate.

(Reference: State Government's Western Australia Tomorrow Population Report No 7).

Despite the above, the Shire of Capel Councillors are intent on our new police station being constructed in Capel instead of Dalyellup.

With the exception of Councillor Southwell (who has attempted to have this issue debated at public Council meetings with no support from other Councillors) Council has resolved to have the police station built in Capel during internal (closed to the public) meetings. No business case or cost-benefit analysis has been developed to support Coucil's decision. No reasoning or rationale has been tabled to explain this highly irrational decision. No community consultation has occurred.

Commissioner Dawson, our petition to you contains a simple request. Please direct your own hierarchy to identify the most appropriate location within the Shire of Capel within which to construct the new police station. Your organisation has the knowledge, experience and data to support or not support the construction of the police station in Dalyellup. The Shire of Capel Council (with the exception of Councillor Southwell) has well-demonstrated that it does not have the knowledge, experience or data to make this very important determination.
