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.
Retirement can be the best part of life but we all need a little assistance as we grow older. Who better to turn to than someone who is part of the Police family. It is family we joined many years ago and NARPO is a very important part of that family.
The South Yorkshire NARPO welfare group exists to make provision for the welfare of our members, many of whom have been involved in the recent inquest. Over 200 voluntarily attended the hearings and gave evidence.
The major concern of the group is the welfare of our members still caught up in the on-going investigations into Hillsborough.
We are concerned that comments made by other parties risk compromising any future proceedings. Therefore, it would be inappropriate to comment further.
Sheffield branch social dates - please see Sheffield Branch page.
