Blair calls for special Policing Board meeting on misconduct issues

Alliance Policing Board spokesperson John Blair MLA has called for a special Policing Board meeting dedicated to issues around alleged misconduct and the associated processes within the PSNI.

The PSNI had confirmed it was investigating a number of alleged incidents of misconduct spanning a number of years, yet full details are yet to emerge.

John said: “We must have full disclosure and clarification around the number of outstanding investigations and while this morning gave some space to ask questions of the PSNI, this will never allow us to fully access what has happened.

“The impact of these revelations is far reaching, which is why we need a dedicated meeting where all the details can be laid out.

“The PSNI will be aware how serious this situation is, but we must ensure a full open and transparent process and that the policing board is kept fully up-to-date as the body responsible for holding the PSNI to account.”
