Peter Robinson: Jeffrey’s deal breaker not a deal breaker…

Peter Robinson says the expertise in the outgoing full time police can be harnessed in a civilian capacity. Jeffrey Donaldson’s so called deal breaker ‘retention as police officers or no devolution of policing and justice’ seems to have withered on the vine [see Jim Allister’s statement yesterday] in the wake of a DUP chief constable meeting this afternoon. This would mean the serving officers would get an opportunity to be an absorbed potentially as civilians because of their experience.
