This chapter covers the two years from publication of the Independent Commission’s Report to the establishment of the first cross-community Policing Board. It identifies a number of phases – reactions to the Commission’s report which proved highly controversial and was contested by many Unionist representatives, the British Government’s subsequent legislation (the Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2000) including the debate over the name of the new police service (the Police Service of Northern Ireland – PSNI), discussions at Weston Park in July 2001 and other occasions over the Implementation Plan and other matters with interested parties (especially the Social Democratic and Labour Party – SDLP), political and security developments, and preparations by the RUC and the Northern Ireland Office for the change programme.

Keywords:   Implementation plan, Police (northern Ireland) act 2000, PSNI, Weston park, Change management
