Ruane calls for fresh recruitment process to appoint new DCC

15 September, 2014 - by Caitríona Ruane

Sinn Féin MLA and Policing Board member Caitríona Ruane has withdrawn from the panel to recruit a new PSNI deputy chief constable and called for a fresh recruitment process.

The Policing Board member said;

"I removed myself from the panel for selection of a deputy chief constable because I believe that the process may have been compromised.

"In light of the need for absolute transparency in all public appointments and to protect the Policing Board's integrity I believe the best course of action would be to begin a new recruitment process."
