Policing and politics….

Eric Waugh argues that Northern Ireland is already over resourced compared to other places in terms of police ratio to the population: “In the Republic there are just over 300 police per 100,000 population. Scotland has fewer than 300, England and Wales only 240, France about 360. We have nearly 550. So what is wrong?” What’s wrong, he claims, is the continuing politicking around the subject.
