Policing Board condemn threat to police engagement

04 April 2019

Board Meeting 2019

The Northern Ireland Policing Board has condemned a threat issued to a Derry/Londonderry youth club.

Board Chair Anne Connolly said: It is important that young people and the wider community are free to engage openly and freely with their local police, and other organisations which have an influence on their lives. 

There are no circumstances where anyone should prevent such engagements and the Board condemns any attempt to do so.  We are committed to working with the PSNI and the community to ensure that people continue to engage with the police, and feel safe in doing so.”
