The Australian Federal Police Museum's Threads of Policing exhibition is now open at the Canberra Museum and Gallery and will be on display until Saturday 5 March 2022.
Inspired by the AFP's 40th Anniversary quilts, the exhibition showcases the AFP and celebrates its achievements, while honouring the dedication and commitment of its members.
This is a rare opportunity to explore the varied work of the AFP as reflected by stories of its members.
This exhibition presents four beautifully made quilts as well as objects from the AFP Museum's fascinating collection, which further illustrate the stories behind the quilt blocks.
Some of these objects come from significant operations, including the AFP's assistance with the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 investigation in the Ukraine, peacekeeping operations across the world, items from the Canine and Forensic collections, as well as the diving gear highlighting the extraordinary Thai cave rescue, and much more.
During the exhibition are two events at the Gallery; a recount of the Thai cave rescue with AFP divers and the Curator's talk to give an in-depth look at the exhibition. The first presentation is scheduled for 16 February 2022; tickets are free but bookings are essential. Click here to find out more.
The Canberra Museum and Gallery is open Monday to Saturday, from 10am-5pm and is located on the corner of London Circuit and Civic Square, Canberra.
