Well Done & Well Deserved



The issue criteria for this Award had been reviewed and it has 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.  Email your name and registered number 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.


Are you keeping up with what's going on around you?  Take a look at our 'Latest news' page for important Retired Police Association information!

NB: I have posted details of: information regarding the National Police Service Medal and the 100 Years of Woman Policing in 2015.

We encourage you to join the RPA as a registered member.  Benefits include our quarterly published gazette as well as the opportunity to share in the camaraderie of your former workmates.  To make application please contact the State Secretary on the above numbers or write to him at "RPA State Secretary PO Box 354, Wingham NSW 2429.

You are invited to visit this website at any time and use the information to catch up on what's happening in the branches as well as our feature articles which will be regularly updated.

More importantly... the latest 'Vale' notices will be posted as soon as we become aware of them. This will no doubt be of great benefit to our readers who want to get in touch with bereaving family members and perhaps attend the funeral. Previous years may be viewed on our  'Past Vales'  page.
