George Hamilton, Chief Constable of the Police Service announces his retirement…

Northern Ireland’s top cop has said he will retire in June. From his Twitter post:

According to his Wikipedia page, he is only 51, seems quite young to retire? But if you had a 200k salary and a rather handsome pension you might be tempted to have an easier life.

Heading the PSNI is no easy task and George Hamilton has always seemed a straight-talking fair-minded guy who was always willing to engage and give straight answers. In these turbulent times, his steady capable presence will be missed.
