A new Police Compensation Scheme has been introduced for Police Officers and Aboriginal Police Liaison Officers who are medically retired due to work-related illness or injury.


Medical retirement is instigated by the agency as a last resort when it is evident from a medical assessment that an eligible member can no longer perform their duties. Medical retirement is not initiated by an employee.

The Police Compensation Scheme commenced on 1 January 2022 and enhances the level of care and support provided to officers who are no longer able to serve as a result of being injured in the line of duty and supplements existing in-service and post-service entitlements, including the former officer medical benefits scheme.
