PSNI Chief Constable George Hamilton has sent a letter out to every home in Northern Ireland to explain the upcoming changes to policing.
Starting on Wednesday April 1st, Policing Districts in Northern Ireland will be re-aligned to match the boundaries of the 11 new Super Councils as part of the Review of Public Administration. It is expected to take up to six months for the changes to be implemented in full.
The letters will include an area specific newsletter which will introduce the local District Commander and other Senior Officers.
The Chief Constable said: “Policing in Northern Ireland is undergoing major change, providing us with exciting new opportunities to deliver a policing service with local communities.”
“Our new structure is about providing more time for our officers to engage and investigate. My job, as Chief Constable, is to manage this change process and keep the focus on protecting people, preventing crime and detecting criminals. We must adapt to new pressures and challenges whilst keeping communities at the heart of everything we do.
