The WA Government has made a $96.5 million investment to upgrade and refurbish police stations across the state as part of the $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan.

A major capital works package includes $52.6 million for the construction of a purpose built, modern police station in Fremantle.

Maintenance and refurbishment works are expected to get underway within weeks and will create an immediate boost to workers such as electricians, painters, plumbers, builders and carpenters.

$23.5 million will be spent on refurbishments and upgrades at 15 police stations across regional and metropolitan WA.

$14.2 million in improvements will be carried out at five multifunctional police stations in remote regional WA.

$4.2 million has been set aside to construct a new wharf and jetty for the Fremantle Headquarters of the Water Police.

$2 million is also being spent upgrading the remaining WA Police Force analogue radio network in the Kimberley.
