It comes after staff were informed of an increase in the risk of attack. Mr Frew previously chaired the Assembly’s Justice Committee.

He said, “This is a disgraceful threat which must be condemned by everyone. Employees of the Probation Service are doing a vital job on behalf of the whole community and they deserve our full support.

I would hope that staff will not be deterred from continuing their work and that any assistance they need in terms of security will be provided to them.”
