Questions raised after Liberal MP Peter Abetz pays for and distributes police letter
The letter is on an official WA Police letterhead and is addressed to residents from the Officer in Charge of Canning Vale Police.
In the letter, the Senior Sergeant introduces herself, talks about a new local policing strategy and details how to contact her team.
At the end of the letter is the branding of local Liberal MP Peter Abetz, with a disclosure that he paid for the printing and costs.
The Opposition’s Sue Ellery said the letter was inserted into political campaigning material Mr Abetz had delivered to letter boxes.
“It’s extraordinary … it’s not appropriate for politicians to be inserting themselves into the everyday communication business of police,” Ms Ellery said.
“Is it the case that WA Police are so starved of resources themselves that they have to get local MPs to introduce them to the people they are protecting?
“I’m fascinated to know what the Police Commissioner thinks about this … who authorised this, was it approved by the Premier?
“I have never seen a local backbench MP be the main conduit for information to voters from a government agency and I do think with police in particular it’s really not appropriate to politicise them.”
‘Nothing political’ about letter: Peter Abetz
But Mr Abetz defended the letter, saying it was his idea to pay for and distribute the police communication with his political pamphlet.
He was not aware of whether it, or the use of WA Police letterhead, had been authorised by anyone in senior police ranks.
The police have a limited budget and I’m more than happy to contribute to the well being of my community by facilitating the letter to go out to every member of the community.Liberal MP Peter Abetz
He denied it amounted to politicising police and said he was proud to be able to help them communicate with the local community.
“There’s nothing political about that at all … it’s simply a letter from police,” he said.
“The police have a limited budget and I’m more than happy to contribute to the wellbeing of my community by facilitating the letter to go out to every member of the community.
“I think police and the community and my constituents need to work together to make this a safe community and anything that I can do to help that communication, I’m more than willing to put my money to that.
“The community policing effort is a State Government-initiated project and for me to help the police communicate what this State Government project is doing, I think, is very appropriate for me to do.
“It’s a total non-issue because as members of Parliament we often sponsor the printing of [information for] say the local horticulture or garden club or biking group or senior citizens group.
“We do that all the time so if we do it for any community group, why shouldn’t we be doing it to communicate a fantastic government initiative which is the local policing program.”
Mr Abetz said the costs incurred for the letter were for photocopying, and his volunteers had delivered it.
A spokeswoman for Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan said he was not aware of any arrangement with the local MP to sponsor the costs of letters and postage.
“There are communication strategies in place to inform the community about the new policing model,” the spokeswoman said.
“However, if a local policing team was authorised to contact residents by mail, then the cost should be met by WA Police.”
Ms Ellery also queried information obtained under questions in Parliament revealing the Government’s $600,000 Bigger Picture policing advertising campaign was paid for out of the WA Police budget.
“It is not appropriate when we are slashing and burning across every government agency for money to be taken directly from police to fund political advertising,” she said.
The Government has consistently maintained its “Bigger Picture” campaigns do not constitute political advertising.
