About the PFA 

Organisation type and coverage: a union of employees connected to the Police Force or Service

Financial year: 1 July to 30 June

Date of registration: 4 February 1942, originally as the Defence Establishments Guard Association and later became the Australian Federal Police Association (AFPA)

In 1998 the AFPA changed its rules to establish the Police Federation of Australia (PFA) which now incorporates branches for all State, Territory and Federal Police. In the process, the APFA became a branch of the PFA. Its coverage is connected to the emergency services industry.

The organisation consists of 8 branches, one branch in each state and territory, including an Australian Federal Police Association Branch (AFPB). While each branch is a reporting unit for the purposes of financial reporting, only the AFPB lodges a full financial report. The other branches lodge exemption applications under s.269 or s.271 each year.

The organisation is governed by a Federal Council consisting of delegates elected by the respective branches from the financial members in each branch. The organisation s also governed by a Federal Executive, whereas the branches are governed by their respective Branch Executive, Branch Committee or Branch Council.

Elections across the organisation are conducted every 1, 2 and 4 years. These elections are conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission.

For the current rules, information on rules, rule alterations and permits, please see the Fair Work Commission website. These matters are dealt with by the Fair Work Commission.
