This chapter deals with the evolving estate strategy of the PSNI beginning with the recommendations in the Independent Commission’s report about modernising existing police stations and making them less forbidding, and ending with a section on the long-delayed proposed Police College which was also a recommendation of the Commission. The chapter looks at these issues primarily from the perspective of the Policing Board, including the process that the Board devised for consideration of proposed closures of police stations, along with consultation with the relevant DPP and the local community. It also notes the inter-relationship between the Policing Board’s oversight of the PSNI’s estate strategy implementation, and the British Government’s commitment to security normalisation as part of the political and peace processes. The concluding section describes the Board’s role in relation to the proposed College at Desertcreat, near Cookstown.
