Throughout the last three decades human rights groups have condemned their frequent and extreme use of Plastic Baton Rounds PBRs. Should police officers take a promise to serve the community? His tough and measured stand in the Hong Kong negotiations won him many admirers. Public Order Policing Plastic bullets should be retained, but used on the same basis as in the rest of the UK. Accountable decentralisation is proposed through giving directly elected local governments opportunities to influence the policy formulation of the Policing Board though their own District Policing Partnership Boards. The objections to this idea - fears of "balkanisation" and concerns about creating services with different status - are the least convincing part of the report.

The astonishing absence of legal personnel within the RUC with expertise in human rights will be remedied. Thank you. The report provides for continuing the role of the British Army in policing the north. Questions: Do you think the police have too much power under present laws e. But this will be phased in over 10 years. New and old democratic thinking on accountability is evident.

The parallels between her situation and that of Patrick Finucane were not lost on Rosemary Nelson. The young boy was attacked by three loyalists and beaten with baseball bats and shot in the stomach with a pellet gun. We want to understand that transformation process, and its successes and challenges, so that we can learn from their experience. There was a sectarian attack on a 13 year old Catholic student attending Hazelwood Integrated College in north Belfast. The local police Commander should pay attention to the concerns of the District Boards. The Cory investigation was mandated by the Weston Park agreement between the Irish and British governments as a means resuscitate the stalled peace process in Northern Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Police Service is a neutral title, not least because nationalists in the referendum, north and south, accepted the current status of Northern Ireland as part of the UK as long as a majority so determine.

The unelected members under a devolved government will be appointed by the first unionist and deputy first nationalist ministers.

Would you be willing to help with police training in the future? The Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for NI, Ian Pearson, The Patten Commission report on policing in Northern Ireland book that "our figures on discrimination against the Protestant community by the policy show that, to date people have been discriminated against".

The report highlights the discrepancy between the over 80 percent support amongst Protestants for the RUC, compared with under 50 percent amongst Catholics. The UUP executive said his proposals would undermine the force's "province-wide effectiveness and cohesion", and, by allowing Sinn Fein places on a new police board, "create a channel for the involvement of terrorist organisations in policing".

All institutions continue to make excellent progress in implementing a programme of change in policing that may be the most sweeping and complex ever attempted in a modern society.

The Community and Policing A. For example, the Loyal Orders will be obliged to have their own trained marshals, and their own policing plans, to accompany any requests to organise specific parades. Contribute to the fight for socialism in has been a year of mass social upheaval. Still difficult, and still incomplete, a new beginning in policing has been set in motion.

These improvements help to reverse the negative effects of past discrimination. Here it scores highly. Six months after her testimony -- exactly five years ago from yesterday -- Rosemary Nelson was murdered, killed by an assassin in a vicious car bomb attack.

This decision followed the killing of Hugh Torney on 3 September Billy Giles Giles had been released from prison in after serving 15 years of a life sentence.

In particular, the measure was not welcomed by Unionist political parties. Send us your answers and we will pass them on to the Government. Unless both the police and the community value and work at their relationship no structures, no matter how good, will lead to good policing.

There will be no genuine reduction of the police presence in Northern Ireland, which presently stands at 13, officers for a population of less than 2 million. Where the report is insufficient is in its tolerance of Orange Order, Ancient Order of Hibernian and Masonic membership by serving officers.

The young boy was attacked by three loyalists and beaten with baseball bats and shot in the stomach with a pellet gun. If so, should there be something in this about identities?

Trimble's stance compounds the difficulties facing the British government. Each neighbourhood should have its own police team with police serving there for years.

What was seen as weak by some has not detracted from his reputation. It should be assumed that everything is made available to the public unless it is in the public interest -- not in the police interest — to hold it back 6. This can pave the way for a change in attitude and thus predicate institutional change.

As a means to enhance police accountability, the Special Rapporteur also The Patten Commission report on policing in Northern Ireland book recommended an independent judicial inquiry into the case of Patrick Finucane, the defense attorney who was murdered in front of his wife and children inunder circumstances suggesting possible collusion by officers of the RUC.

It is possible to even say that the compositional improvements of the PSNI may have influenced the Metropolitan Police in London to call for positive action measures to increase the representation of ethnic minorities.
