The Aboriginal Legal Service of WA (ALSWA) is devastated by the loss of life of a young mother at the hands of a police officer in Geraldton.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the family and friends of Ms. Clarke on their terrible loss.

ALSWA CEO Dennis Eggington said “Those responsible for her death must be held to account and police practices have to change so that nothing like this can ever happen again”.

Mr Eggington praised the ALSWA Geraldton staff for their compassion and support given to family and local community members following the tragedy.
