We position policing for the future
The leading advisor on current and emerging policing priorities
The Australia New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency (ANZPAA) was established in 2007 through agreement of the Police Commissioners across Australia and New Zealand and the then Australasian Police Ministers’ Council (APMC). The current members are the Police Commissioners from each jurisdiction in Australia and New Zealand, and the Chief Police Officer from the ACT.
The National Institute of Forensic Science (NIFS) was amalgamated into ANZPAA in 2009 and operates as one of our directorates.
The Australia New Zealand Council of Police Professionalisation (ANZCoPP) was first established in 1993*. It was amalgamated into ANZPAA in 2007. Council Members comprise of all the Police Commissioners and Presidents of the Police Federation of Australia (PFA) and the New Zealand Police Association (NZPA).
We provide balanced and impartial advice on current and emerging priorities, identify and respond to risks and opportunities, and support policing to solve complex problems and create preferred futures
We promote consistent good practice and explore ways to optimise resources in a cost effective and sustainable way
Shaping Stronger Connections
We enable and proactively partner with policing and key stakeholders to generate and share innovative ideas, enhancing outcomes for policing and communities
We work effectively and deliver our projects thanks to the collaborative relationships we have with a range of partners, both within and beyond policing.

ANZPAA acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are Australia’s first peoples and the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we work. ANZPAA is committed to fulfilling the principles of New Zealand’s founding document The Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi). Central to the principles is a common understanding that all parties will relate and participate with each other in good faith with mutual respect, co-operation and trust.
ANZPAA is an advisory agency. If you have a policing matter or an emergency please contact 000, or your local police station.
