Due to the current Coronavirus situation, all the Dewsbury branch meetings and social events are cancelled until further notice. It seems unlikely, with the social distancing guidelines and mindful of our member age profile / possible spread of the virus, that we will safely, be able to hold any branch meetings in 2020. The most likely next meeting will be the AGM, on Tuesday 9th March 2021 (date subject to confirmation nearer the time).
Welcome to the Dewsbury Branch NARPO Website.
The Dewsbury Branch serves the retired members and families, who have in the main, served in the Dewsbury and surrounding areas, under the umbrella of the old Dewsbury Borough & West Riding Constabularies and the current West Yorkshire Force, which was formed after the amalgamation in 1974. We also have members from other areas of West Yorkshire and other parts of the country. All are most welcome.
You have to be logged in and registered to view some of the pages on this site. Registration is only available to current Dewsbury branch NARPO members.

Although a relatively small branch in numbers, we have one of the best attendances at meetings (pro-rata), of any branch in the country.
At each of our quarterly meetings, all members are invited to come along with their partners and meet up with old friends and colleagues.
At the meetings we set aside a short period of time for the members to be updated and raise any queries and then we have a free buffet along with a quiz.
We are most anxious that when a member passes away we ensure the wife/husband/ partner of the member remains a member and this is actively pursued by the present Branch Secretary.
All contact with DEWSBURY Branch is via the Secretary.
