Local Policing Review 2018/19

In 2018 the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and Northern Ireland Policing Board (NIPB) conducted a public consultation on local policing. Information gathered during the consultation has been independently analysed by Ulster University and we are pleased to share the findings with you in the Local Policing Review consultation response document.

The Local Policing Review 2018 consultation ran for 10 weeks, from 30th August, 2018 to 9th November, 2018.

During the consultation 4,328 people responded to the online simulator (including written comments), 886 people responded to the three consultation questions, there were 15 written organisational responses and feedback was provided from 87 public consultation events which were attended by more than 3,000 people.

The independent analysis has identified six priority headline actions:

  • Visibility
  • Neighbourhood Policing
  • Vulnerability and Mental Health
  • Call Handling
  • Collaboration and Multi-Agency Working
  • Competing Policing Demand

These headline actions will now be implemented through 45 delivery actions which can be viewed in the Local Policing Review consultation response document (PDF - 1MB).
