The Sunday Times can reveal that top brass and the Police Union have agreed to pay up to $2000 towards lap-banding operations for obese officers in a bid to counter chronic illnesses.

Several officers, mostly frontline and traffic police, have already undergone the surgery, the WA Police Union confirmed yesterday.

The expenditure coincides with drastic State Government ordered belt-tightening, which has seen frontline officers stripped of 115 mobile phones, more than 80 police motorcycles sold off and the police fleet slashed by 50 vehicles after a directive to reduce car costs by 10 per cent.
