PFNI Chair welcomes new Policing Board appointments
The Chair of the Police Federation for Northern Ireland (PFNI), Mark Lindsay, has welcomed the appointment of a new Chair and Vice-Chair of the Northern Ireland Policing Board.
Doug Garrett, who’s an Independent member of the Board, was elected to succeed Professor Anne Connolly OBE, and Dr Tom Frawley will take over as Vice-Chair from Debbie Watters.
PFNI Chair, Mark Lindsay, said: “First of all, I would like to register my gratitude to both Anne and Debbie for their hard work, dedication and commitment over the years they served. We enjoyed a very productive relationship with them working to achieve common goals on behalf of the community and the officers I represent. I wish them well for the future and thank them for the fair-minded and objective way they carried out their roles in often difficult circumstances.
“I would like to congratulate Doug Garrett and Dr Frawley on their election. Both Board members have a wealth of private and public sector experience they can call on and I hope we can continue to enjoy the same constructive relationship we enjoyed with their immediate predecessors.”
