As I continue to
advise, if your subscription remains overdue for 120 days then you
will miss out on your issue of the RPA Gazette as your name
automatically falls off the mailing list. Unfortunately, those who
have failed to pay their subscription for this year, will miss out
on this Gazette.
We try to avoid sending reminders by post due to
the costs involved. If you have a Police Bank account, you can
transfer same to our account No. 70483S1. If you are transferring
from another Bank, drop the S1 from our account number. BSB is
815000 and the account is in the name of "RPA of NSW". In
either case add your name as the reference so we know who has paid.
The dues remain at $22.00 per annum. The subscription for Widows who
are members remains at $10.00 per annum.
POLICE LEGACY ‘BACKUP FOR LIFE’ EXPO AT ROSEHILL
I can report that the Expo held on 28th October
was a resounding success and it is estimated that about 1000
attended. There were some 60 stalls offering advice and support to
former members and many serving Police also attended. The RPA also
had a stall and I am pleased to report that we signed up 20 new
members and many others took information about us away for
A very popular stall was the one set up for the
receipt of applications for the new Retired Police Identification
Card and I understand well over 400 applications were received that
The application form and all the information
relating to the application process is now available on the NSW
Police website. Leading up to the Backup for Life Expo, where
the Retired ID Card was released, there was a link to the
application form vide the Police Legacy website however I advise
that that is now not the way to apply for it.
I remain extremely grateful to those of you who
pay your subscriptions automatically through the Police Bank or
State Super. As a result you don’t receive a new membership card
each year so if at any time you would like a replacement just let me
know and I will be pleased to get one to you.
As this is the final Gazette for this year I would
like to extend Seasons Greetings to you and yours. I wish you all a
wonderful Christmas and a very healthy, happy and prosperous 2017.
