The decision not to vaccinate all police staff before the public roll-out has left some officers baffled. 

There are estimated to be about 10,500 sworn police and about 3,000 non-sworn officers.  

2523 frontline officers have received two doses. 

2849 have received first dose. 

Given they are now on the frontline, enforcing a Level four lockdown, questions are being raised as to whether this is acceptable.

Police Association President Chris Cahill joined Kerre McIvor.
