Mr Paisley commented “The results of the review were certainly alarming, but perhaps more worryingly, they weren’t overly surprising. The pressure continues to mount on police forces right across the United Kingdom are undoubtedly feeling the pinch of cutbacks, but with the PSNI having the dissident republican threat looming over their heads as well, it is little wonder that morale is at such a low.
In light of this report being published, now is the time for our Policing Board and Justice Department to push for a review of the current system and set out clearly what must be done to address its very concerning conclusions.”
