Speaking at the conclusion of the police operation for today’s industrial action, Police Gold commander Temporary Assistant Chief Constable, Melanie Jones said: 

“I am very pleased with how today’s public safety operation went. Our officers were in attendance at parades and rallies across Northern Ireland to keep everyone safe.

“The engagement between organisers and officers was really positive. Disruption to traffic was minimised and there no other issues of concern.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who engaged with us today and in the lead-up to today’s events.

“I also want to remind road users that driving conditions remain challenging in some parts of the country. If you do need to travel please take extra care and allow additional time for your journey.”
