Premier Mark McGowan has cemented his support for a police station in Capel.

While in Bunbury yesterday, Mr McGowan said the long-awaited station would happen but an exact location was still being determined.

“We’re building a new police station in Capel to meet the needs of the community of Capel, but also the inland areas surrounding Bunbury,” Mr McGowan said.

“It’s been called for for a long period of time, it’s an $8 million commitment and it’ll have police officers based there.”

“We expect it will be in the Capel townsite, but that’s something we’re working on currently,” Mr McGowan said.
