IMPORTANT MESSAGE:   NATIONAL POLICE SERVICE MEDAL.

On 12 April this year Prime Minister Abbott notified us that the issue criteria for this Award had been reviewed and it had been backdated to 14 February 1975, which is the date that the former Imperial Award of the Police Long Service and Good Conduct Medal was replaced by the National Medal.

We worked hard to achieve entitlement to this Award and we are grateful for the assistance of Mark Burgess, the CEO of the Police Federation of Australia. Mark has continued to work on the processes for the facilitation of the issue of the Award to us and our Protocol and Awards Unit has requested our patience. We obliged, but we are aware that the agreement of the Australian Police Forces on the form of application and process has been achieved for some time as evidenced by the date on the foot of the approved application form of 1 September. The patience of both Mark and ourselves has expired so we now offer the approved application form and instructions.

Any person who considers they are eligible to receive the N P S M can request the documentation as follows:

Instructions and Application Form are available on request to RPA by email to the 'Webmaster' at <gjw33@bigpond.com>.  The documentation will be sent to you by return email for you to save and print the application and forward to the address indicated for processing.
