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.

15/02/17 50th Anniversary of the Amalgamation of the Derby Borough Police and the Derbyshire Constabulary. As you know this year is the 50th Anniversary of the Amalgamation of the Derby Borough Police and the Derbyshire Constabulary so NARPO have decided to celebrate this Anniversary. We have booked the Mickleover Golf Club, Uttoxeter Road, Derby DE3 9AD from 7.00pm., to 11.00pm on Saturday 1st April 2017. It is intended that the evening should provide an opportunity for retired officers whether NARPO members or not, support staff and others with a connection to the amalgamation, to meet with colleagues that perhaps they have not met for a long time, to reminisce and remember the good times and the not so good. It has therefore been decided that entertainment will not be provided. Partners and personal guests are equally welcome, the dress code is casual and a free buffet will be supplied.
Mickleover Golf Club is a Private members Club and so to comply with Club Rules and to assist with catering it is necessary that we know the numbers and names of those attending. To date over 50 persons have indicated that they will be going, including the Chief Constable or his deputy, Derby Divisional Commander or his deputy and the Mayor of Derby, Cllr. Linda Winter
All persons who wish to attend should contact either John Louch on 01332 363840 or email@example.com the Secretary Sean Murphy on 01773 609043 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We need at least seven days’ notice of everyone’s intention to attend or by the 25th March, 2017. Sean Murphy (secretary)
