Families play a key role in supporting employees to do their job.This support becomes even more important when a loved one becomes ill or is injured.
The WA Police Force has recognised the need to do more to share information with families so they can also help to support recovery and wellbeing.
A new website is being developed just for family members, which will provide access to information about the services the WA Police Force can provide to support them and their loved ones.
To make sure the website will best meet everyone's needs, input from family members is being sought through online game-based activities. Family members can access these activities via email sign up here.
Previous feedback from families has already helped to transform the WA Police Force with one example being recent changes to the Welfare Team who now provide more one-on-one personal contact with police employees and their families.
