2846. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Police:
I refer to work undertaken by West Australian Police about hate crimes, and I ask, will the Minister please table the following documents:
(a) “Western Australia Police Force assessment of crime trends based on prejudice towards the diverse sexuality and gender community”;
(b) “LGBTIQ+ Community Crime and Safety Survey”;
(c) Executive Briefing notes regarding the above survey (final/latest draft); and
(d) Executive Briefing notes that capture evaluation of the intelligence assessment (final/latest draft);
(e) if no to any of (a), (b), (c) or (d), why not?
Hon Stephen Dawson replied:
The Western Australia Police Force advise:
(b) Yes. [See tabled paper no 3852. - Hon Alison Xamon — QON No. 2846 — Details from WA Police regarding hate crimes committed against LGBTIQ people ]
(c)–(d) A draft Agency briefing note is tabled with some redactions. [See tabled paper no 3852. - Hon Alison Xamon — QON No. 2846 — Details from WA Police regarding hate crimes committed against LGBTIQ people ]
(e) The Intelligence Assessment, as referred to in (a), and redacted portions of the draft Agency briefing note, contain intelligence information. The State Solicitor’s Office has advised that this information is properly subject to public interest immunity, on the basis that the public interest favours that intelligence information is kept confidential so as to not adversely affect the investigations conducted by law enforcement agencies. In line with that advice, this information is not tabled.
