Leaked PSNI report tells us absolutely nothing new - Maskey

26 August, 2009 - by Alex Maskey

Sinn Féin’s Policing and Justice spokesperson and Policing Board member Alex Maskey MLA, has said that the internal PSNI report, leaked to the local media, only goes to highlight what people have known for some considerable time.

Speaking this evening Cllr Maskey said;

“Firstly I welcome the fact that this is an internal PSNI report and therefore an acknowledgement that these issues, raised by ourselves and others over a period of many years, must be addressed.

This report doesn’t tell us anything new, we have been raising these problems, and others, within policing here for years.

In saying this I do welcome the PSNI now owning up to the problems that are there and it is important to acknowledge that just last week the Policing Board began discussions with them on how best to tackle these issues in the time ahead.

People expect and deserve the highest standard of effective, civic and community orientated policing and we will continue to work with the PSNI and all the other relevant stakeholders to achieve this aim.” CRÍOCH
