AFP members recognised in Australia Day Honours

Two Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers have today been officially recognised for
their significant contribution to the community by being named in today's Australia
Day 2010 Honours List.

Superintendent Marzio Da Re and Assistant Commissioner Timothy Morris AM have
both been awarded the Australian Police Medal.

Superintendent Da Re is AFP's Senior Liaison Officer for Jakarta and has been
recognised for his efforts in enhancing Australia's policing relationship with a wide
range of international law enforcement authorities.

His achievements have been attained through his advanced organisational, command
and liaison skills and demonstrated over a lengthy and distinguished policing career.

Assistant Commissioner Morris AM joined the AFP in 1986. He was seconded to the
former National Crime Authority as an investigator in 1990 and gained extensive
experience in investigating money laundering activity.

During his career, Assistant Commissioner Morris gained a reputation as an astute
investigator. He was appointed a member of the Order of Australia for his leadership
in the investigation of the 2002 Bali bombings.

AFP Commissioner Tony Negus said the efforts of the two AFP members are
exemplary and demonstrates the important role police officers have in the
community both in Australia and abroad.

"The AFP is a progressive law enforcement agency committed to taking a strong lead
in the fight against 21st century crime. The outstanding work of today's two
Australian Police Medal recipients is a testament to that," he said.
