Police Service of Northern Ireland

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) works to make Northern Ireland safer for everyone  through the delivery of a personal, professional and protective policing service.  This is achieved by policing with the community we serve.  Our proactive, community-driven approach sees the police and local community working together to identify and solve problems, address crime and the fear of crime.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland has developed considerable and extensive knowledge, skills and expertise in providing a first response to significant and major civil emergencies, terrorist incidents including shooting and bombing incidents.  Such response has required coordination and integration with colleagues in the  Fire and Rescue Service, Ambulance Service and on occasions An Garda Siochana. PSNI is recognised as a leader in the delivery of a human rights based policing service and has extensive experience in the delivery of public order policing. PSNI has also worked to deliver an integrated community driven policing approach, utilising the addition of social media platforms and supporting technology into our everyday policing service. This work has become an integrated part of the service we deliver.

The PSNI also liaises on policing matters when required with the Garda Siochana in Southern Ireland.
