AFP Legacy


Australian Federal Police Legacy (formerly known as the Chequered Ribbon Association) was set up to provide support including financial assistance to the families of AFP members. Should a current member, either sworn or unsworn, pass away on or off duty, whatever the circumstances (accident, injury or illness), sudden or diagnosed, then support will be offered. This support also extends in the instance where a partner of a current AFP member passes. AFP Legacy’s purpose is to support the police family and to perpetuate the memory of those fallen AFP members.

The AFP Legacy Board of Management comprises of a team of dedicated AFP employees who volunteer their time and represent a broad cross-section of the policing community. AFP Legacy is governed by a constitution and guidelines and is an Incorporated Association in the ACT.

As a not-for-profit organisation, AFP Legacy relies on the generosity of payroll deductions, sponsors, fundraising and the sale of merchandise.

With support received, AFP Legacy aims to continually improve in order to the meet the needs of the families being supported.
