To NARPO or not to NARPO

Posted in The Job - General by 200

NARPO is the National Association of Retired Police Officers.

I have no idea what they do. I presume they have some kind of newlsetter or network to let each other know when each others die, but other than that I have no idea what their purpose is.

I’ve not been contacted by them yet. Perhaps I’ll have to wait until next week, presumably someone from  HR will let them know of my impending retirement?

I know there are a couple of regular visitors who are ex-job, are you NARPO members? If so, can you let me know whether it’s worth joining (if I actually get invited to join, of course).

As was pointed out by one of my posters recently, in America, when you retire from the force, you get an ID card which says you are a retired police officer (I’m not sure what you’d use it for, mind). In the UK you don;t get anything, except for a small certificate which you can put on the toilet wall, but the quality of it is pretty poor.
