(p.127) Chapter Six The Policing Board’s Modus Operandi
Policing in Northern Ireland

Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on the arrangements that the Policing Board made for going about its work and its communication and consultation with the public, together with a description of a number of reviews of the effectiveness of its operation. This includes its committee structure and how that evolved, its corporate plans and its code of conduct. The chapter describes the successive reconstitutions of the Board and the induction arrangements for new members. The chapter details some of the external – and internal – reviews of the Board, beginning with that by the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee in 2004-05, and the independent assessment commissioned by the Board itself in 2005. The reviews in general paid tribute to the effectiveness of the Board, especially at a time when the other political institutions were suspended and the political process was in jeopardy.
