Fantastic News on Policing

A ground-breaking agreement clearing the way for police officers from the Republic of Ireland to serve in Northern Ireland is to be signed tomorrow,it was revealed today.

Under the agreement,officers from Northern Ireland will also be seconded to the Republic.

PSNI Chief Constable Hugh Orde and Noel Conroy,Commissioner of the Garda Siochana will sign unique joint protocols which allow personnel exchanges and secondments between the forces.The signing,at Hillsborough Castle in Co Down,will be attended by the Northern Ireland Secretary of State Paul Murphy and Justice Minister Michael McDowell.

I am delighted at this news and I can only hope that it will pave the way for an all-Ireland police force.
