We were formed in 1947 and we celebrated our Diamond Jubilee in 2007.
It is known that the founder member and first Secretary was in 1947, Thomas Joseph Kennedy, an ex Inspector at Matlock and he continued in this office until 27th March, 1963. The Chairman was W. B. Clews and both worked diligently towards an efficient branch.
On 6th February 1956 the first invitation was extended to the Chief Constable, W. E. Pitts, to attend a meeting on Sunday 18th March, which he did. He was invited to become President of the branch to which he agreed and the practice continues to this day.
Our present Chairman is Michael Watson and the present Secretary is Sean Murphy.

14/09/16 Obituary It is with deep regret that I have to inform you of the death of retired officer Martin SMITH. Whilst full details are not yet known I understand that Martin passed away at his holiday home in Fuerteventura.
Martin worked in Operations Support for many years and took early retirement from the force as a result of a tragic accident in 2013. I met him on many occasions in his role as a firearms officer. I know many of you will have fond memories of him and his enthusiasm for life and walking and mountaineering adventures prior to his accident, which makes his passing at a young age all the more tragic.
Once further details are known they will be circulated. Sean Murphy (secretary)
