The Retired Police Officer Identification Card was launched by Commissioner Andrew Scipione AO, APM at the inaugural NSW Police Legacy Backup for Life Expo. Commissioner Scipione acknowledged the contribution retired police officers made to the community of New South Wales and to the NSW Police Force. To honour the service of our retired officers, he approved the establishment of the Retired Police Officer Identification Card.
