Justice Minister, Claire Sugden has acknowledged the vital role of the Police Rehabilitation and Retraining Trust (PRRT) in providing services to serving and retired police officers and their families.

Minister Sugden was speaking during a visit to the premises of the Police Rehabilitation and Retraining Trust where she met the Board members and staff to hear about the support they provide.

Minister Sugden said: “I welcome the opportunity to meet the PRRT Board and staff and to hear at first-hand about the services they provide. PRRT has a vital role to play in supporting serving and retired police officers and their families, as well as members of the wider justice family.”

I very much appreciate the personal commitment and contribution of the PRRT Board and staff in this vital work.”
