What we do
The NTPA is the industrial voice of all members of the Northern Territory Police Force. The NTPA negotiates all industrial agreements for its members and ensures the protection of member's rights.
The NTPA was first formed in 1939. The Association lapsed in 1942 after the Bombing of Darwin then reformed in 1946 - anecdotally because of a dispute over lockers.
The NTPA Executive is made up of the President, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Treasurer and ten Executive members.
The President and Executive members are elected every four years.
There are elections held biennially on the odd year, with half of the Executive up for election one election and half the next to maintain continuity.
There are 12 regional branches throughout the NT. The regional branches are made up of five delegates being the Chairperson, Vice Chair, Secretary and two Ordinary Members. Elections for all regional positions are also held biennially, on the odd year.
An Annual Conference is held each year which sets the direction for the Executive and Association.
The Annual Conference is the supreme governing body of the organisation. It is made up of the elected branch officials and the Executive. The Annual Conference sets guidelines, goals and objectives for the Association.
