How are you going to sort that? The 50:50 recruitment policy imposed by the Patten reforms has now ended.
We’ll once more have a Protestant police for a Protestant people.
Get your head out of the sand.
I’ve told you over and over again. There’s
No surrender!No surrender!
Do give over.
That just convinces people that joint sovereignty is all the more urgent. Loyalists are now one of several minorities in NI.
The latest census says so
Green is Catholic and Orange is Protestant.
Just for the sake of talking how would joint policing work?
At present people living in NI can apply to join the Garda Siochana and people living in the Republic can apply to the PSNI. Both services probably select the same type of applicants because all modern police forces have similar aims and duties
Their purpose is to make Northern Ireland safer for everyone through Personal (dealing with local concerns), Professional (service excellence), Protective Policing (tackling serious harm)
Their core values and principles are
Honesty – Being honest and ethical and adhering to the principles of fairness and justice
Accountability – Accepting individual responsibility and ensuring public accountability
Respect – Having respect for people, their Human Rights and their needs
Professionalism – Providing a professional policing service to all communities
Combining all those ideals would give us an unbelievably top-class police service
Both forces are starting recruitment drives.
The PSNI hopes may add nearly 500 new officers to the force by 2015 – including more Catholics and people from the west of Northern Ireland. It will particularly welcome applicants from Fermanagh, Tyrone and Londonderrywhere recruitment is low
Maybe people in those areas would be happier with the Garda Siochana?
Interestingly, recruitment to An Garda Siochána is set to recommence after being suspended for several years because of the public sector hiring freeze
The Public Appointments Service say they have received some 27,000 ‘expressions of interest’
The new recruits could easily be trained to work together
Anyway how would they work together?
Under Joint Sovreignty
if the local MP opts for Westminster we have the PSNI operating in the constituency,
If s/he opts for the Dail we have An Garda Siochana.
If there’s a large minority either way in the constituency we have combined operations.
Balcanization of NI!!
No, a rational solution to some of the tribal problems that beset NI.
