PSNI should offer their assistance to the USA

Published 14/07/2016

The awful scenes in the United States of America involving the African American community and police are deeply disturbing.

The USA has been a good friend to Northern Ireland and perhaps now is the time Northern Ireland might express our gratitude through practical support.

The PSNI has developed an enviable international reputation for building community support in difficult inter-community and anti-police circumstances.

To say thank you, perhaps it is time for the Minister for Justice to offer specialist PSNI secondments to US police forces. A friend in need is a friend indeed.
