71% proof?

New figures on the make-up of the PSNI have been released. 71% were serving members of the RUC. 303 officers of the 9131 officers have experience in other forces particularly the London Metropolitan Police and the Military Police. Only one officer has served previously with the Garda.

    This figure is really not that surprising.
    What would be more interesting would be the percentage of senior officers who are still there..

    I am glad so many old RUC men are still in the service and am pleased so many of their children are following in their footsteps.
    It is important that continuity exists.

    71%!! Wow! No wonder Terry Spence came out spitting fire and brimstone at the weekend excoriating the SoS (for remarks made) and Nuala O’Loan (both for her report and its timing). His backwoodsmen are frontwoodsmen.

    Well, he can posture all he wants. His own members were found to be colluding with a serial killer as the ‘evidence-based’ report showed.

    I actually had been expecting a Slugger thread on the subject of his remarks but no doubt Mr Spence will be back…

    The make up of the PSNI looked great on the two blondes outside the Northern Bank especially the blonde with the pony tail.
