SINN Féin has formally nominated North Antrim MLA Philip McGuigan as one of its three representatives to the reconstituted Policing Board which is expected to resume meeting next month.

Mr McGuigan said: “The Policing Board is a hugely important mechanism in terms of holding policing to account.

“Our party’s support for the policing structures is based on transparency and accountability so we welcome the reconstitution of the Policing Board which is now expected to meet in December.

“Democratic oversight of policing is crucial, particularly in the current context where issues such as Brexit are likely to impact on policing arrangements.”
