Support for PSNI officers should not be subject to political horse-trading

Mark Lindsay

This entire incident was unfortunate for all concerned, but it is important to remember that the officers who attended did not engage until after the memorial event had finished and were attempting to speak with organisers in accordance with the 'Four Es' policing strategy that has been so evident during the pandemic.

Two officers came across this event in the course of patrol and were totally unaware of the event or the context of this memorial.

They were not directed to attend nor did they wish to cause offence or hurt.
