PICP Chair’s Award

Every year the PICP recognises a current or former Pacific police member who has demonstrated outstanding service to policing the Pacific Island region across more than one member country.  The award recipient would have an exemplary police record and they will potentially be a role model for other police members.

A call for 2020 award nominations will be made in June 2020.
