12 July 2016

I met representatives from the Police Federation of Northern Ireland (PFNI) in December 2015 to discuss a range of issues. The Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Northern Ireland also met the PFNI in March 2016.

Levels of recruitment are an operational matter for the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland.
