Take Part in the 2018 Public Consultation on Policing

September 21, 2018

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and the Northern Ireland Policing Board are seeking your views to help shape the future of policing.

The 2018 Public Consultation on Local Policing was launched at the end of August as part of the Local Policing Review which will explore how police can best meet public need and demands and deliver the most effective local policing.

District Commander Supt. David Beck said: “This consultation will give our local community and stakeholders an insight into the complexity of policing and the opportunity to share their views on how we can meet the changing demands and priorities we face.

“Our Policing and Community Safety Partnership will be hosting a public consultation meeting to allow you the chance to have your say. We would like to extend a warm invitation to all members of our community to attend and take part. The meeting will be held at The Ivanhoe Hotel, Saintfield Road Carryduff, on 16th October 2018 7.00pm.

If you cannot attend the public meeting there are other opportunities to share your views. You can provide responses to three key questions on our website at

We have also developed a prioritisation simulator which can be completed online at This will provide you with an insight into the range of issues and challenges involved in allocating policing resources and you will be able to prioritise where you think resources should be focused in the future.

We need your views to help us meet the challenges of the future and continue to deliver the police service you want and need.”

PCSP Chair Councillor Brian Hanvey said: “It is really important that local communities have their say on what their policing priorities are and this is your chance to shape how things are delivered in the future.”

The consultation will run until 9th November 2018.
