Membership of a professional body serves a number of different and diverse purposes. Apart from offering a focal point for the profession that enables members to advance mutual professional interests, membership is also used by professions to regulate and control professional practice and domains.

The Australasian Institute of Policing (AiPol) is the voice of Australasian policing, representing the views and promoting the skills of the profession to all levels of government, industry, the media and the community. Through the sharing of knowledge and best practice policing the Institute aims to ultimately enhance the policing service to our communities.
