Welcome to NARPO Essex.

NARPO Essex has three branches, Chelmsford, Colchester & Southend on Sea.

Two of the three branches, Chelmsford & Southend, are represented on this website in their own areas. You will also find National news along with other aspects of interest in the common area of the site.

What is N.A.R.P.O.?

NARPO represents the interests of more than 86,000 former police officers of all ranks together with their widows, widowers and former partners. Its primary concern is to promote measures for the welfare of members with particular regard to pensions. In promoting those aims it takes a general interest in all issues affecting the health and wellbeing of older people in society.

NARPO is an active member of the Public Service Pensioners Council, the National Pensioners Convention and AGE (the European Platform for Older People). In addition it has close associations with several charities supporting both the police and older people.

NARPO is in a position to comment on a range of issues from the perspective of the older person. It is particularly informed to comment on policing and police related issues from the position of both former practitioners and current users of the service. – See more at:
