Aboriginal flags will be flown permanently at all West Australian police stations as part of the force's Reconciliation Action Plan to improve relations with indigenous people. Commissioner Chris Dawson said it was an important move to show "we mean what we say".
"I want them to see respect, I want them to know that we're dinkum, that we're serious about it," Commissioner Dawson told ABC radio.
Commissioner Dawson's announcement comes almost 11 months after the Aboriginal flag was raised permanently outside the Western Australian Police headquarters in East Perth as he apologised to Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders on behalf of the force.
