About NARPO Wakefield with Pontefract and Dewsbury

The Wakefield with Pontefract and Dewsbury Branch of NARPO currently has around 943 members made up of retired police officers and a number of partners of deceased colleagues. Nationally, NARPO has a membership of about 93.000.

Initially, NARPO Wakefield was a standalone branch,, however two years ago (2021), the Wakefield committee were approached by members of the Pontefract branch committee asking to merge the two branches and this was subsequently agreed and the Wakefield with Pontefract branch was formed.

Following the successful merger of Wakefield with Pontefract and finding it more difficult to manage as a viable branch, members of the Dewsbury branch committee approached Wakefield with Pontefract, again asking to merge.

This was subsequently agreed and from 1st April 2023, the Wakefield with Pontefract and Dewsbury branch of NARPO was formed.

Members of the now enlarged branch, have access to all social events and outings, details of these can be found in the members area, under Upcoming events.

Members will need a password to enter the Wakefield with Pontefract and Dewsbury members area.

The password is unique to this branch and branch members only.  It is available upon request via email to

On joining you will find a friendly and supportive body of 'Old Comrades' who  in addition to working towards the objectives of NARPO nationally, aim to give the opportunity of friendship and support amongst the retired officers community, helping people embrace Life, Work and Leisure after the police.
