Our work in Nauru

Nauru – Australia Policing Partnership program


The AFP and Nauru Police Force (NPF) work closely together across a range of areas through the Nauru-Australia Policing Partnership (NAPP) program, including:

The goal of NAPP is to ensure the NPF is a professional, effective and trusted community-based police service.  NAPP provides NPF support in the following areas:

  • executive development
  • the police training centre
  • frontline, intelligence and investigations capability
  • infrastructure and asset maintenance. 

We provide AFP members as part of the NAPP. We mentor and assist to develop reporting systems, key documents and focused activities. We also work with a range of stakeholders including the Department of Justice, advising on police practice to inform legislative amendments.
