NARPO represents the interests of in excess of over 86,000 former police officers of all ranks and their widows, widowers and former partners. Our primary concern is to promote measures for the welfare of our members with particular regard to pensions. In promoting those aims we take a general interest in all issues affecting the health and well being of older people in society.
We are active members of the Public Service Pensioners Council, the National Pensioners Convention and AGE, the European Platform for Older People. In addition we have close associations with several charities supporting both the police and older people.
NARPO are in a position to comment on a range of issues, not only pensions, from the perspective of the older person. We are in a particularly informed position to comment on policing and police related issues from the position of both former practitioners and current users of the service.
