Welcome to the home of Northumbria NARPO on-line


Northumbria NARPO membership has a long history found in the City, Borough, County and River police  officers of the north east of England. Those original forces were amalgamated over the years to comprise what is currently known as Northumbria Police. The Northumbria NARPO Branches are proud to have amongst their number some retired officers who can trace their service back to one of those constituent forces.
