Justice Minister Naomi Long has announced the appointment of six new independent members of the Northern Ireland Policing Board, effective from Wednesday, 1 April 2020.

The Minister said: “I am delighted to announce six new independent members of the Northern Ireland Policing Board. The work of the Policing Board is central to the policing architecture in Northern Ireland and those appointed will have a demanding role to play, dealing with many complex issues, during their tenure.

“Since the Board’s inception in 2001, support for policing from all sections of the community has increased and it is important to build on this achievement. The independent members are crucial to maintaining and building on that level of support. The Board also has a significant role in overseeing the work of the National Crime Agency Northern Ireland.

“Having an effective and efficient Board which holds the Police Service of Northern Ireland to account is vital.

“I would like pay tribute to the five outgoing independent members for the significant contribution they have made to policing in Northern Ireland and their personal commitment to the Policing Board and its work.”

Following a Commissioner for Public Appointments for Northern Ireland regulated public appointment competition for independent members, Naomi Long appointed the following independent Board members:

Michael Atkinson
Janet Gray
Edgar Jardine
Carmel McKinney
Francis McManus
Deirdre Toner
