Tony Mulder, APM (born 9 May 1955 in Rotterdam, Netherlands) is an Australian politician, and an independent member of the Tasmanian Legislative Council, representing the electoral division of Rumney since his election on 7 May 2011.
Mulder is a former police officer, and was a Commander in the Tasmania Police. He was director of the State Security Unit, the Tasmanian Police counter-terrorism taskforce. He has served as an alderman on the Clarence City Council since 2005. Although running as an independent candidate, Mulder openly retains links to the Liberal Party, for whom he ran as a candidate for Franklin in the 2010 state election. Before the 2010 election, the Labor Party lodged a complaint that Mulder may have breached the Electoral Act when he appeared in a television advertisement wearing a police uniform, giving the impression that he was still a serving police officer. He was cleared of breaching the Electoral Act by the Tasmanian Electoral Commission.
