DUP Policing Board Group Leader Mervyn Storey MLA has congratulated Simon Byrne QPM on becoming the next PSNI Chief Constable.
Mr Storey said,
“We look forward to working with the new Chief Constable as he takes forward his vision for policing in Northern Ireland.
I thank all the candidates for their contribution during the appointment process and I congratulate Mr Byrne on being the successful applicant.
Importantly this was unanimous appointment. The real work commences now as we seek to improve policing and tackle those issues which need addressed so our communities feel safe in their homes and proud of their police force.”
