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 Len Smith who was elected in 1987 and the present Secretary is Sean Murphy.

25/11/15 TV Show Storage Hunters UK Looking for Contributors Hi All,
See below message – If anybody fancies being on Storage Hunters it could be for you!
I hope that you’re well! I work as a Casting Producer for North One Productions, makers of the hit TV show Storage Hunters UK. We’re about to start casting for the new series of the show and we’re very excitingly looking for people to take part in the show!
Our confident team of hunters will bid on the contents inside of a whole host of storage units. With only a glimpse inside of each unit, our buyers should be savvy enough to recognise a good deal, haggle and bargain against some big personalities!
I’ve attached a flyer with more information about the show. We’d love it if you were able to spread the word around your colleagues, as well as any friends and family who you think could be keen to take part by popping the flyer up at work, or placing it on your Facebook/ Twitter pages.
The casting team are talking to applicants as we speak and will be meeting with people very soon, as filming takes places around the UK throughout January.

25/11/15 Time Out 2 Enjoy Update Hi Everyone,
I hope this quick update finds you well and that storm Barney has not proved too problematic in your area? If it has then here are some offers to take your minds of it!
Firstly, the Eurocamp offer has just a couple of weeks to go and I have had a quick look at their own website and they have already taken their early booking offer off (at least as far as I can see)
Secondly, I have just updated the last minute offers from Warner Hotels. These are amongst our most popular offers and importantly, our late offers include the Simply Dine meal package for free where as on the own late offers it has to be paid for as an extra.
Thirdly, Hoseason has a number of offers for 2016 including book with just a £25 deposit – and all their holidays come with our 8% discount
As always, these are just a selection of the offers on our website but hopefully they are of interest.

25/11/15 Employment Opportunity Brownsword are a long established provider of motor insurance investigation services to many major insurers across the UK and our field based enquiries are conducted on our behalf by an extensive field force who work for us on a self employed basis. The majority of these individuals are from a Police background, as this allows them to continue to utilise the unrivalled skill base which they have built up over many years.
The type of enquiries which our field force undertake includes interviewing drivers / witnesses / police officers etc in relation to road traffic accidents, preparing evidence based statements and the production of locus reports (including a sketch plan & photographs of where an incident has occurred).
Due to the pending retirement of one of our long serving field investigators, we are now looking to strengthen our coverage in Derbyshire, with the main focus of work being in and around Derby.
If anyone is interested in learning more in the first instance should email me a current CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are particularly interested in hearing from any of your members who come from a CID background, as this is the experience preferred by our Dedicated Fraud Unit.

24/11/15 Request for Petition to Defence Secretary to be forwarded to all NARPO Members & Regular Officers. Asbestos Exposure in HM Forces.
Hi all, Please see letter below for your information.
Sorry to trouble you again on this subject but I am seeking your support in the anticipation that any member(s) who develops the lung disease Mesothelemona will have access to compensation for his or her care and that of their family.
I have been laid low for a few days following my first of six courses of Chemotheraphy but am continuing on in an attempt to encourage the Government to comply with the Military Covenant and pay compensation equal to that received by non military personnel who have been exposed to the lethal mineral Asbestos'
I joined the Police in 1965 and at that time the military was a favourite source for suitable recruits and it is highly likely that amongst our membership there are many fomer armed service veterans who have been exposed to asbestos, some having 'passed on' without their next of kin being paid compensation, many like myself' having been told that the Crown is immune from litigation/paying compensation and an unknown number living in ignorance that they are at a high risk of this incurable disease.
In the last few weeks I have encouraged the media via radio and television interviews to expose this discriminatory injustice in an attempt to have veteran service personnel treated in exactly the same way as their civilian counterparts. Following last weeks question to the Prime Minister in PM's Question Time an Adjournment debate granted to my MP David Mackintosh is scheduled for this week on the 19 November.
Very many serving and retired officers will have family members as both former police officers' and ex military and who may slip the net in making all aware that at this point in time any compensation they may get via a small war pension will be a small fraction compared to their civilian counterparts. It is important that everyone who may have been exposed to asbestos prior to 1987 is given the opportunity to sign the petitions and all persons signing the petition are urged to forward details of this subject and the three links to all contacts either via email or social media.
Please Sign (3) Petitions - For Fred and 2,499 other Armed Forces Veterans who need your help:
