As of 2015, the National Association of Retired and Former Law Enforcement Officers, and the International Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers support retired police officers, state the associations. They provide news, networking and employment opportunities, member discounts, and legislative advocacy on behalf of former law enforcement personnel.
Any retired law enforcement officer throughout the world can join the International Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers. The organization also supports the International Police Association, which is the world's oldest and largest organization of retired and active peace officers, notes the IARLAEO.
Membership in the National Association of Retired and Former Law Enforcement Officers is open to law enforcement officers who previously served in any local, county, state or federal agency. The purpose of the association is to give former service members one national voice, explains the NARFLEO.
