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.

29/04/16 Police Mutual Respite Services Please see the below information regarding this scheme. I ask anyone who is affected by this condition, either suffering or caring for someone with dementia to let me know so I can nominate them, for a respite break.
The Police Mutual Foundation has launched a pilot respite scheme, specifically aimed to support the retired police community.
Since its launch in 2011, Police Mutual has been supporting the wellbeing of police officers and staff by offering a range of services.
Police Mutual’s Head of Police Service Engagement, Claire Long says; “For some time now we have been working hard to improve the wellbeing of the police family. It is only right that this support should extend to those who have retired from the service. We also appreciate that the health and wellbeing demands in retirement increase and that they become more complex. By working with NARPO, RPOAS and NIRPOA we hope to significantly increase our support to this community in a meaningful and manageable way.”
The respite pilot aims to help those retirees who are either suffering from or caring for someone with dementia. Police Mutual will be working with a number of specialist providers to source a respite break.The breaks will be planned based on the demands of the people who are being supported. There are up to 20 breaks available between now and the end of the year, with a view to extending the programme in 2017. Sean Murphy (secretary)
