Papua New Guinea - Australia Policing Partnership program

Papua New Guinea

The AFP and Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) have a deep and trusted police-to-police partnership that reflects Papua New Guinea's (PNG's) and Australia’s status as close neighbours with shared values and mutual security interests.

The Papua New Guinea – Australia Policing Partnership (PNG-APP) program supports the RPNGC’s to deliver effective policing services that support PNG and Pacific communities. Through targeted advisors and capability uplift, the program improves investigation processes that target serious and organised crime. It also assists the RPNGC with training and operational support to meet the evolving and complex global criminal environment.

Our AFP members are responsible for law enforcement cooperation, joint operations and capability building.
