Am i eligible to apply?
There are five criteria that you must meet to be considered for the WA medically retired Police Redress scheme:
If you feel, despite not meeting all criteria, that you should be considered, please apply explaining your reasons.
It is also wise to have any documents you might wish to include in your application scanned (PDF) and ready to upload before you begin your application. These might include correspondence between WAPOL and you or medical reports.
Please understand that these criteria are only to determine your eligibility for this scheme. They will not be used to assess the level of any offer that may be made.
If you are not eligible, we will let you know within a month of your application. Those who are eligible will receive a letter in the second half of 2019.
The website and applications link will open. Lodge your application now via the application portal.
The Review Team will check eligibility, review available information and compile recommendations for the Independent Assessment Panel (IAP).
Once all applications have been received and reviewed, the IAP will view each de-identified application and determine offers of payment.
The IAP will send you a letter of offer. You will have (a predetermined time) to accept this offer. You will be asked to provide your bank details for payment at this stage.
The panel would also like to offer eligible applicants a certificate of Honourable Discharge [medical], and for those who have not been presented with a Police Star, the panel will ask for permission to put forward a nomination.
