Helping former AFP members since 2009
The Australian Federal Police Former Members Association Inc. (AFPFMA) was registered as an incorporated association on 13 December 2018 and we are the only organisation with an elected body representing former sworn and unsworn members of the Australian Federal Police (AFP). Our members have dedicated their careers to serve the Australian community and to keep it safe and secure.
AFPFMA aims to bring together former members of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and provide them with a sense of community, camaraderie and support. Police officers and professional staff that transition out of the AFP and become former members are sometimes at a loss of what to do after their long association with the AFP has ended. Being an AFP member is a career and a way of life, so once you leave that environment it can be a difficult adjustment for some.
The AFP Former Members Association is a national organisation, and was formed from a Facebook group that was created in August 2009 by our inaugural President. If you have an AFP service number you are most welcome to join our Association.

The AFPFMA has established a Welfare Fund for it’s members. It aims to provide relief and assistance to AFP Veterans, sworn and unsworn, and their families who are ‘in need’, or experiencing hardship or distress. This may include short term relief through cash (such as in the case of the bushfire victims) vouchers for house cleaning/gardening/ transportation, food shopping etc or short-term respite.
