The Irish Dimension

(p.573) Chapter Nineteen The Irish Dimension
Policing in Northern Ireland

Desmond Rea

Robin Masefield


This chapter deals with the significance of the Irish dimension, starting with the scope for structured co-operation identified by the Independent Commission, measures taken by the two Governments to put a policing co-operation framework in place and the actual progress in exchanges of police officers. The chapter brings out the Board’s role, and the challenges that existed in delivering closer co-operation and specific measures in line with the Commission recommendations. It also looks at policing developments in Ireland over the same period, including the report by Judge Smithwick, culminating in the announcement in 2014 by the Irish Government that there would be a policing authority for the Garda Siochána there too.
