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.
It is with considerable regret we have taken the decision to postpone this years Old Comrades Dinner in October. It is very unlikely that social distancing rules will be relaxed sufficiently to allow the event to take place in the manner and surroundings we would want. We will monitor the guidance on social gatherings and if possible suggest a new date for the event later this year or early next year. If we are unable to reschedule the event within a reasonable time period, then it is likely we will make a major donation to charity with the subs taken this year.
