A scheme for medically retired officers
The Western Australian Government has set up the Police Redress scheme, because it believes the treatment of former police officers who were medically retired under Section 8 of the Police Act 1892 for a work-related illness or injury was unpleasant and undignified.
The purpose of the scheme is to acknowledge their separation from the agency under section 8 should have been done better and to show them the dignity and respect they deserve. The scheme is not about compensation for loss of income or their injury. This will hopefully go some way towards making amends for the way this group of officers were treated when they left the service.
Applicants must meet all the five eligibility criteria:
