The Australian Federal Police (AFP) has endorsed a project to document the history of AFP Uniform and Insignia. Eric Grimm (retired AFP Superintendent and AFP Former Members Association Member) will manage the project with support and internal coordination provided by the AFP Museum.
A group of over 60 former AFP members came together at the AFP College in Barton, Canberra on Friday 18 October 2019, to attend the inaugural AGM of the Australian Federal Police Former Members Association Inc. The previous Executive Committee was returned with the addition of 2 new committee members.
On 11 April 2019 the Australian Federal Police Former Members Association Inc. was launched by President Mike Doroshenko, outside of AFP Headquarters. We were joined by A/C Wayne Buchhorn, AFPA President Angela Smith & Fortem CEO John Bale who showed their support.
The great news is that we are official. After 39 years the AFP finally has a former member’s association. One that is a benevolent group with its only interest in helping former AFP members through life’s challenges.
