Officer dies at Perth police station

West Australian police are investigating the death of an officer at a station in Perth, which has been temporarily closed.

Police say it appears the officer died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at Cockburn Police Station this morning.

It’s the third case of a West Australian police officer taking their life on the job in the past 10 years.

The WA Police Union and Medically Retired WA Police Officers Association have long called for more support, saying many first responders reported having suicidal thoughts after witnessing traumatic events.

In July 2015, Detective Sergeant Scott Blanchard took his own life while travelling with workmates to Kalgoorlie for a police operation involving Gypsy Joker bikies.

Deputy State Coroner Evelyn Vicker recently handed down her findings following an inquest into his death.

“I recommend WA Police health and welfare division use the police intranet to emphasise to serving members that their families should be made aware of the availability of its services,” she said.

In December 2008, Senior Sergeant Elliot Watt shot himself in the armoury of the Collie Police Station.

It was the first day back at work for the father of four after three weeks of annual leave and he had just assumed the role of acting officer in charge.

Readers seeking support and information about suicide prevention can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14, Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467 and beyondblue on 1300 22 4636.

‘I know what they’re going through’: Commissioner opens up on police suicide

WA Police Force Commissioner Chris Dawson has revealed how he attended the suicide of a colleague as a young 20-year-old officer.

The state’s top cop said work across the community needed to be ongoing to ensure those who wished to speak up and seek help for mental health issues were not seen as being weak.

Mr Dawson made the comments on Thursday morning on Gareth Parker’s 6PR Morning Show.

He was speaking in the wake of the tragic death of a WA police officer who died at Cockburn police station on Monday.

First Class Constable Darren Igglesden, 50, is believed to have taken his own life shortly after reporting for duty at 6am.

Mr Dawson said he visited the police station on Wednesday where he spoke openly to First Class Constable Igglesden’s colleagues.

“I’ve dealt with suicides before,” Mr Dawson said on Thursday.

“I attended a suicide of one of my colleagues as a 20-year-old, so I personally understand what they are going through.

“When it’s one of your own, it hits that much harder.

“It probably galvanises you to the reality that you are mortal and while police put on uniforms and we get given powers and authorities … you’re not immune from the frailty of human life.

“The approach taken now … is that we talk openly about it. That will continue through not just today and tomorrow but in the time ahead.”

Mr Dawson said the agency was putting much greater emphasis on following up with officers who have attended confronting incidents.

“We also need to address any sort of perceptional culture that it is a sign of weakness if you ask for help,” he said.

“We are doing a lot of work … for officers that are exposed to scenes and incidents that do have a higher level of risk and stress attached to it.”

At a press conference on Monday Mr Dawson said First Class Constable Igglesden’s death had come as a complete shock to his family, friends and workmates.

Blue Hope, a not-for-profit group whose aim is to highlight police officers’ mental health issues nationally, posted to its Facebook page on Tuesday a photo of the 50-year-old in his police uniform.

“We will probably never know why Darren took his own life but what we are absolutely sure of is the fact that WA, this country and in fact the world is now less one hero,” the post read.

If you are experiencing mental health issues contact LifeLine WA on 13 11 14, the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.
