TWEED Police want to hear from past NSW Police members to take part in Retired Police Day.

The inaugural Retired Police Day is on the September 6 at the PCYC Tweed Heads.

Tweed Police duty officer Darren Steel said there has already been strong interest from retired members.

"We have more than 60 retired officers from as far away as the Northern Suburbs of Brisbane register for the day but we are confident there are many more eligible retired officers who haven't contacted us yet.

"The Retired Police Day is going to become an annual event but this year's has some significance as the retired officers will be eligible for the presentation of a commemorative pin to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the NSW Police Force."

"While we are keen for retired officers to attend the barbecue lunch we are hosting to have their pins personally presented by Local Area Commander, Superintendent Stuart Wilkins," Mr Steel said.

"We understand some may not be able to attend.

"Retirees who can't attend can still register to receive a commemorative pin that we will forward to them."

Retired NSW Police wishing to register to attend the day or receive the commemorative pin should contact Tweed Heads Police Station on 07 5536 0999.
