The Commissioner’s Group Citation for Conspicuous Conduct is awarded to a collective group of individuals who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to duty in circumstances demanding tenacity of a high order through the application to their duties, work requirements, mission, operation, or role within the AFP. Members of the group involved each receive the award.

If in the event an individual is awarded the citation on a further occasion, a new citation with a silver numeral applicable to the issue occasion is awarded.

Design

Nomination

If you wish to nominate an individual, visit the nomination portal.

The size of the investigation or project and the eventual outcome is not necessarily the major determinant for an award; it is about the actions of the individual. In addition, as AFP methodologies evolve and improve, investigations or projects that were been granted awards previously may now not necessarily reach the required standard.

Nominators need to consider the full life of the event being nominated, and that all relevant parties have been considered. In addition to investigators, members who made a significant contribution from support areas should be considered.

For people outside the AFP who wish to nominate an individual email nominations@afp.gov.au.

If it doesn't add up, speak up. Call the National Security Hotline - 1800 123 400.
