About Us



NARPO was founded in 1919 and currently has over 84,000 members. It is the only nationally-recognised organisation for retired Police Officers in England and Wales. Scotland, Northern Ireland and the British Transport Police have their own Associations with close links to NARPO.

The Wiltshire Branch is one of 111 branches distributed throughout England, Wales and the Isle of Man. The Branch was founded in 1948 at the same time as many other County branches, and currently represents the interests of over 900 members, most of whom are former members of the Wiltshire Constabulary, or the former Salisbury City Police which amalgamated with Wiltshire in 1943. We also have a significant number of members who retired from other Police Forces, but are now living in Wiltshire.


The Wiltshire Constabulary (now known as “Wiltshire Police”) is the oldest County Police Force having been formed in 1839, and has the proud motto “Primus et Optimus” - the first and best. For more information about the history of our Branch of NARPO see the information and brochure on the Branch History page.
