Creative Police Photography Contest – Final Selection

Over the past couple of weeks, local tweeps on Twitter looked for and identified the most creative photos taken and posted by WA’s very talented officers. Today we present the photos selected by the community to run in the contest.

Western Australia’s Police stations were asked to tag their photos with #creativecopspics to show off their creativity and skills and compete with other WA Police stations in a fun and friendly contest.

The voting on Wednesday will be open to everyone and you will have the opportunity to vote on the best entry from 5PM WST on Wednesday 15th July. Bookmark/favorite this page or follow us on Twitter to make sure you do not miss out!

Huge thanks to WA Police and WA’s tweeps for getting on board with this initiative to show WA policing in a new creative way and kudos to Marty for starting this initiative in the first place.

Albany Police Station
Albany Police Station

Albany, located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, is the oldest permanently settled town in Western Australia, predating Perth and Fremantle by over two years.

Albany Police serves a population of over 30,000, and in their commitment to the community they tweeted photographs of local Constable Slebos and his duties in policing Albany throughout last Friday:

Emergency + By National Triple Zero Awareness Work Group

Save the app that could save your life.

‘Emergency +’ is a national app developed by Australia’s emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone’s GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.

When calling Triple Zero (000), remember to stay focused, stay relevant, and stay on the line. Before you call, ask yourself:

  • Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
  • Is your life or property being threatened?
  • Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero calls are free.

The Emergency+ smartphone app is FREE and available for download from:

Texas Police Officer Survives Horror Crash With An 18 Wheeler Semi Truck

Grand Prairie Police Department Crash

Two Grand Prairie police officers are lucky they weren’t seriously injured in two separate serious accidents in two days.

Video captured by a nearby traffic camera and a police dash camera shows the moment an officer was hit by a semi-truck at the intersection of Texas State Highway 161 and Pioneer Parkway in Grand Prairie on Friday. Police say the truck driver ran a red light.

“A fully loaded 18-wheeler ran the red light going westbound and plowed right into the left side of his Tahoe, spun it almost a complete 360 degrees,” said Sgt. Eric Hansen with the Grand Prairie Police Department Traffic Unit. “Fortunately, he wasn’t hurt, but the vehicle may be totaled.”

Leniency For Terrorist Sympathiser Who Bashed His Mother And Threatened Police

A terrorist sympathiser who bashed his elderly mother and threatened police and government officials is better off in the community than in jail, a magistrate has said. Khodr Moustafa Taha, 35, of Brunswick, pleaded guilty to 10 charges, including using a carriage service to threaten, after he sent a series of tweets that included support for Sydney siege gunman Man Haron Monis between October and December last year. When Taha was interviewed by police he admitted to running the “Angel of Death” Twitter site and making threats to kill US President Barak Obama. He denied possessing child porn, but allegedly admitted to seeing the content online.
