Instituted in 2007 and awarded to all AFP employees for 10 years cumulative and diligent service from 19 October 1979.
The design, much like the Northern Territory version, deviates from the standard design used on the State Diligent Service Medals. The ACT Service Medal follows the internal theme using the Platypus.
At the 20 year point, an antique bronze bar is awarded. Further clasps are then awarded for 25, 30 and 35 years.
*Clasps for this medal must be ordered separately using the 'Clasps' product in each collection.
