Law and Order


HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [9.45 pm]: I rise because I want to make some comments about my concerns about the way in which we approach the issue of hate crime in Western Australia. I spoke about this issue last year. At that point, I raised concerns about the lack of not only a comprehensive definition, but also, specifically, data systems, resulting in a lack of action to protect vulnerable populations.


2813. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer to the answers to my question on notice 2700, regarding children who were strip searched by police in 2018–19, and I ask:

(a)  how many of these children were Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander;

(b)  for what reasons were each of the 1,450 children strip searched;

(c)  how many items were found during these searches;
