Welcome to the IODPA – Injury On Duty Pensioners Association.

We are a community of former police officers all medically retired with an injury on duty award (IOD).  This site provides the reader with a wealth of experience, knowledge and information collated by those living with an injury pension.  Those involved in IODPA cover the breadth of the UK with links to every region.

This group hopes to share the wisdom of those who have have dealt with problems caused by police pension authorities in order that no-one has to live alone in the dark any more.

Please read the blog pages and get in touch via the reply section below or email admin@iodpa.org if you are seeking answers or have information to share.


“It is of the highest public importance that a democratically elected governmental body, or indeed any governmental body, should be open to uninhibited public criticism”

“It follows, therefore, that every citizen has a right to criticise an inefficient  or corrupt government without fear of civil as well as criminal prosecution.  This absolute privilege is founded on the principle that it is advantageous  for the public interest that the citizen should not be in any way fettered in his statements, and where the public service or due administration of justice is involved he shall have the right to speak his mind freely.”
