You have spent a great deal of your lifetime in service to the community as a valued member of Victoria Police, and you may want to continue the friendships and contacts you made during your service. If so, the Retired Police Association of Victoria Inc is the way to do it.
The RPA offers you the opportunity to keep in touch, and the chance of meeting those with whom you served. We produce a quarterly newsletter (Retired Police Gazette), a copy of which will be posted to all RPA members as well as every police station throughout Victoria. It endeavours to keep members informed of the activities and movements of those old friends you may wish to know about; and it's surprising how often we facilitate re-unions, often as long as 30 or 40 years after members last saw each other.
Membership is open to all those who have served with Victoria Police, left with a "clear and honourable discharge" and who are of "good fame and character".
Whether you have retired through age, medical discharge, resignation or are a Reservist, you are eligible and most welcome. Former members of other recognised Police Forces are also eligible under certain conditions.
To become a member please go to "Membership" print the form, complete it and send it to The Secretary
We look forward to welcoming you!
