NARPO South Yorkshire Branches welcomes all retired police officers.
We are a part of the National NARPO which represents retired police officers of all ranks and police widows, widowers and partners of former police officers.
We offer a range of services to members including advice on pensions and other issues affecting the welfare of our members.
NARPO is the only Association which looks after the interests of retired police officers and lobbies on their behalf with Government and other organisations.
South Yorkshire has four independent branches - Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley & Rotherham - each run by members elected to their posts. The branches have varying levels of activity but all take the welfare of their members very seriously and will be there for members when they need that little bit of help.
There is a draft of the new constitution for the Old Comrades Association. Members are invited to give feedback before it is discussed at the next AGM in April 2018. You can find it on the Old Comrades page in the "About" section.
