This is plainly wrong!

A system used by the PSNI to hire temporary staff — at a cost to the public purse of more than £100m — was “out of control”, a scathing watchdog report has revealed. To help fill the void left by police officers who retired under Patten, 2,740 temporary workers were employed by the PSNI over the past decade — almost 40% of whom were former officers who had left through the severance scheme.

Who gets the blame? How about THOSE who supported Patten as well as the reliably incompetent PSNI?

    Bizarre logic. How about those that did the hiring being blamed?

    No matter how much ultra unionism complains, whinges, criticises & gets nostalgic about the ‘good old days’ of the ‘gallant’ RUC the old political policing of the RUC is dead and buried with a stake through it’s heart and it’s never coming back again.

    Slightly less worrying than the police handling personal information?

  3. It is a pathetic shambles!

    There doesn’t seem to be anyone in strategic decision making that gives a monkeys about service delivery!

    The HET promised the Poppy Day Massacre report and contextual analysis would be ready by this years anniversary.

    A few months ago we are told that that cannot be guaranteed because the PSNI had decided to replace the agency staff WITHOUT consulting the HET BEFORE de decision was made.

    We have been trying to find out from the PSNI what assessment was done of the risks to service delivery which should have fed this decision but he responses have been pathetic and totally miss the point,
