After two firebomb attacks in two separate police stations, State Police authorities are considering placing security guards in police stations here in Western Australia. The first firebomb attack made at the Joondalup Police Station and the most recent one was at the Warwick Police Station. Police are still investigating whether the two attacks are related and have yet to identify a suspect.
I guess using security guards, when you have the money, is logical. It also saves the effort of police to think about other things than crime fighting (and busting drunk drivers). In the Philippines, such scenario is far flung. Police in the Philippines also double as security guards for the station (and for some politicians, too!).
