Narpo South Yorkshire

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.


There are important changes being brought in regarding retired officers and their use of the Police Treatment Centre. 

The Trustees have directed that the PTC will introduce a weekly donation rate of £0.65 for Retired Officers from 1 January 2016, which they will be required to pay if they wish to apply for treatment at the PTC.

NARPO have not been consulted regarding these changes and are making a robust response to the Trustees. Any further developments will be posted on this website.
