Alliance congratulates new chief constable on his appointment

Alliance Justice Spokesperson Dr Stephen Farry MLA has congratulated new PSNI chief constable Matt Baggott on his appointment and outlined some of the challenges he will face in the role.

Dr Stephen Farry MLA said: “We want to congratulate Matt Baggott and wish him every success in his new role as PSNI chief constable. He will face a very challenging policing agenda ranging from further normalising the delivery of policing here to dealing with the remaining terrorist threat, all within the context of a tightening policing budget.

“I think we can take great encouragement from the record and commitment of the new chief constable as regards policing within the community. The greatest demand from people in Northern Ireland is for a shift in resources to focus on providing more frontline and visible policing.”
