Policing Board seek farmers views on 2015-16 Policing Plan

Friday, 29 May, 2015

As government budget cuts continue to impact on public services, the Ulster Farmers’ Union remains concerned as to how rural communities will be affected. As rural crime continues to be a key issue for farmers and the wider rural community, we are encouraging our members to submit their views to the Policing Board’s Equality Impact Assessment on the Policing Plan for 2015-16.

In addition to this, the Board is carrying out a public consultation to identify policing priorities for the 2016-19 period which includes an online questionnaire.

More information can be found on the Policing Board's website 

Closing date for responses is 31 July 2015. 

The wider consultation will also involve targeted meetings and a public meeting on Wednesday 17 June 2015 from 7pm at Lough Neagh Discovery Centre, Oxford Island, Craigavon which will complement the findings of the EQIA process. It will also provide the Board with the views of the wider public, community and voluntary organisations across Northern Ireland on their future policing priorities.
