PSNI pressing ahead with controversial registration process

03/12/2004 - 11:53:34

The PSNI is pressing ahead with a process of asking all officers to register their membership of semi-secret organisations like the Orange Order, the Freemasons and the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

A number of police offices have taken legal challenges against the measure, claiming it infringes their right to privacy.

However, the PSNI said it was pressing ahead with the process nonetheless.

The Patten Report on policing reform in the North had recommended that all police officers declare their membership of certain organisations as a means of ensuring public confidence.
