The Papua New Guinea, Australian Policing Partnership started its first three-week motorcycle course in Port Moresby last month and the enthusiasm and participation has been wheelie high since the get-go.

Seven of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary’s best existing riders participated...

The results of the first National Wastewater Drug Monitoring Program Report are in – and wee have to say they take the urinal-cake.

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission spearheaded the program to analyse wastewater around Australia to measure and interpret drug use within our communities as a result of work by the federal ‘ice taskforce’.

They measured what drugs are being used...

This month in the AFP’s history, the organisation temporarily moved its headquarters into 68 Northbourne Avenue in Canberra in 1988.

It turned out to be a lot more permanent, with the flags in front of the building lowered for the last time in 2010!

Many current and previous members will have fond memories of these temporary digs. If any of you have a story about it, we would love to read...

SCAM Alert!

We’ve received reports of fake emails and SMS messages claiming to be from the Australian Government’s Department of Human Services’ myGov website targeting the community.

The emails arrive with the subject line Australian Government and myGov and it will ask you to ‘verify your identity’ which is designed to capture your credentials and credit card information.

Many have walked the Kokoda Trail for a variety of reasons.

For some it has been a personal challenge, for others a dare, and still others have done it in memory of a veteran in the family.

Rachel and Tess Cutler, a mother-daughter team, are walking it for an altogether different reason.

Mick Cutler, their husband and dad and a member of the AFP family, died from brain cancer in 2013,...

While most of us were enjoying the Easter break (and have now signed up to Chocaholics Anonymous), several people got themselves into a serious spot of bother when they tried to smuggle illicit drugs into Australia.

On Saturday the AFP arrested a 33 year old Melbourne man for allegedly importing about 5 kgs of cocaine through Melbourne International Airport.

Hot on the heels of that...

In the wake of the February 1978 Sydney Hilton Hotel bombing, the Mark Report was completed and presented to the Government for consideration in April 1978. It was developed by a taskforce, the head of which was Sir Peter Lawler, and it led to the creation of the Australian Federal Police.

So it can be said that last Friday 7 April, the AFP lost one of its founding fathers.

Sir Peter...

What better way to start the week than with a throwback from 1947? Constable Alice Clarke (seated, back) was the first woman to be appointed to the Federal Capital Territory Police 70 years ago this month.

In 1955 Constable Clarke became a Senior Constable. She later retired after more than 20 years of service.

The role of women in AFP policing has changed greatly since Constable Clarke...

While we’re not into crystal ball gazing, everyone needs to think about what our future might look like.

From time to time, organisations (and individuals) take stock and consider where they are heading and what is important.

We started as a small agency with a defined focus - the AFP now has a broad range of national and international responsibilities.

Reflecting this, our new vision is...
