WA Police 'in the trenches' in pay dispute

The state government has warned police the public expects them to do their job, amid new industrial action that has included officers issuing cautions for minor offences instead of fines.

The WA Police Union has warned it will launch a third phase of industrial action if its wage demands aren't met, saying the government broke an election promise for a 1.5 per cent pay rise.

However Acting Premier Roger Cook defended the government, denying it had broken a key promise, despite saying it would maintain the 1.5 per cent status quo pay rise for public servants in the lead-up to the March election when it unseated the Liberal-Nationals government.
