People in Perth’s south-east corridor will benefit from an $86 million Armadale Courthouse and Police Complex, set to be open and ready for business in 2021.
In a collaboration between the Department of Justice and the WA Police Force, the Armadale Courthouse and Police Complex Community Reference Group met several times during the year to provide feedback and advice about the project and to hear about how it is progressing.
The group, which includes members from the Department and the community, play an important role in communicating the diverse views of the local community to the project team.
The complex will provide a modern and safe environment for court users, including video conferencing and secure facilities for victims of crime. It will also have a shared custody area between the courthouse and the police facility, meaning people in police custody will be able to go straight to court.
The complex, pictured, will be an important civic landmark in the centre of Armadale and will cater for future population growth.
