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.
**** The bars at Niagara and Club39 are closed due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation. Niagara's earliest opening date is 1 July 2020 if the Government's road map is followed. *****
Sheffield Branch social evening scheduled for 10 June 2020 is CANCELLED.
