The APMP has a Committee to oversee the design, fundraising, construction and completion of the Memorial. The Committee is comprised of over a dozen people who represent the Defence Forces, Police Forces, Government Departments and Ex-Service Organisations, who are elected or appointed to their positions according to the APMP Constitution.

In addition to the Committee, the APMP has 3 Patrons who represent the interests of the APMP and hold the values and ethos of current and ex-members of the Australian Defence Force and Police Services in high regard.
