IPA Australia Serving Police Officers Day
The International Police Association ‘Serving Police Officer’s Day’ (SPOD) was introduced in 2006 by NSW Region as part of the National AGM weekend in order to further enhance the weekend’s events by adding a professional element.
The SPOD is hosted by the policing jurisdiction where the National AGM weekend is being held with the hosting coordinator determining the program for the day. The New Zealand Section of the IPA has also been invited to participate in this initiative as they send a representative to our National AGM. All members are expected to attend in uniform.
The SPOD Program was introduced to encourage the attendance and participation of serving police officers who are IPA members and who do not hold a National or Regional executive position within the IPA at the National AGM weekend. It aims to provide a forum for serving members for the exchange of professional experience in accordance with the aims of the IPA. Attendance at the National AGM weekend exposes members to the functioning of IPA Australia at a national executive level. Regions are encouraged to sponsor the attendance of a serving officer from their Region.
It is recommended that the sponsored member is in addition to the Observer supported to attend by the Region.
All correspondence can be sent to the IPA Australia President:
