The Chief Constable George Hamilton met Ulster Unionist leader Mike Nesbitt and a number of his colleagues this afternoon (Tuesday 10 May 2016) to discuss policing.
Commenting on aspects that were discussed the Chief Constable George Hamilton said: “The Paramilitary Assessment commissioned by the Secretary of State and published on 20th October 2015 remains valid. Over the course of the last seven months, there have been a number of very serious crimes committed in our community.
Significant PSNI resources have been allocated to progress the investigations into these incidents. This investigative activity nor wider intelligence to date has not indicated any change to the position reflected in the October 2015 Paramilitary Assessment.”
