History

Between 1942 and 1982 the industrial interests of the Commonwealth law enforcement were represented by the Defence Establishments Guard Association (1942-1943), the Peace Officer Guard Association (1943-1958), and the Commonwealth Police Officers' Association (1958-1982). In August 1982 the CPOA and Federal Police Association (1979-1982) officially merged, and the Industrial Registrar gave the CPOA consent to alter its name to the Australian Federal Police Association (AFPA).
