NARPO welcome the release of the Pension Ombudsman determination in the case of retired firefighter Mr Milne in the dispute regarding commutation factors.
The President of NARPO Ian Potter has described the release of the notorious police killer Harry Roberts, who was jailed for life for murdering three unarmed officers in Shepherd's Bush, West London, in 1966 as ‘a disgrace and an insult to the families of the victims and yet another demonstration of how this Government have scant regard for policing in this country.’
NARPO calls for "careful consideration" over police pensions.

The National Association of Retired Police Officers (NARPO) has been watching with interest the recent developments in policing and was surprised not only at the Home Secretary’s choice of candidate for Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary (HMCIC) but also at the comment that he was head and shoulders above any other candidate.
