Membership of the National Association for Retired British Transport Police Officers is open to all retired officers of the BRITISH TRANSPORT POLICE FORCE, and to retired civilian staff who have worked in connection with the British Transport Police. Also to widows, widowers or surviving civil partners of former members of the Force.
OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSOCIATION.
1. To bring retired B.T.P. Officers and Staff into the association
2. To foster and maintain friendships formed during active police service
3. To establish a means of communication between members relative to their common interests, with particular reference to pensions and travel facilities.
4. To organise social events in accordance with the wishes of members
We hold regular Committee meetings. Each year, usually in March we hold an Annual General Meeting. Following that meeting we publish minutes including a financial Statement of Accounts, which is then sent to all our members. A newsletter called ‘Retired Lines’ is published 4 or 5 times a year and sent to all members.
The Association is also affiliated to the British Transport Pensioners Federation that represents the rail industry as a whole in respect of pension and free travel matters.
The present subscription to be a member of the association is £2.50 payable yearly in January.
Once you have become a member of this association, you will be eligible the following year to become an associate member of NARPO (the Home Office Forces Retired Officers Association). Details of the subscription for NARPO are shown on the renewal form issued by the association each year in December.
