Association of Retired Police Officers on the Southern Costa Blanca Spain

ARPO was founded by a small group of retired Police Officers and their wives to maintain contact with other retired officers who had settled in and around the Costa Blanca. Since that time membership has flourished as many more ex-police officers of all nationalities move to the Spanish sunshine. Formed in 1998 it was renamed in April 2005 removing any confusion that we were an official branch of the UK Narpo organisation.
