1.     Introduction
On 2 December 2005, in one of the second largest simultaneous public appointment
exercises undertaken in recent years, the Northern Ireland Policing Board announced the
names of 215 people appointed to serve as Independent Members on Northern Ireland‟s
District Policing Partnerships (DPPs).


DPPs were first formed in March 2003 and, having come to the end of their first term, new
Partnerships have been appointed and will run for a four year term.


DPPs are autonomous bodies within local councils and work to give voice to community views
on policing, contribute to the formulation of policing plans, monitor local police performance
and co-operate in preventing crime across Northern Ireland.


An integral part of Northern Ireland‟s policing architecture, DPPs identify, discuss and
prioritise local concerns and establish policing priorities, and in conjunction with local PSNI
District Commanders make a positive and significant difference to policing with the community
across Northern Ireland.


The duties and responsibilities of each DPP are set out in Schedule 3 Part III of the Police
(NI) Act 2000. Their role is set out in Section 16 of the Act. Specifically they are to:

         Provide views to the district commander on any matter concerning policing in the
          district
         Monitor the performance of the police in carrying out the local policing plan
         Obtain the views of the public about matters concerning the policing of the district
         Obtain the co-operation of the public with the police in preventing crime
         Act as a general forum for discussion and consultation on matters affecting the
          policing of the district.

Paying tribute to all DPP Members who served on the first Partnerships, often difficult in
times, the Chairman of the Policing Board, Sir Desmond Rea, said: "DPPs have become an
integral and accepted part of local policing and have brought policing closer to the community
and the community closer to policing in a way that has never happened before here in
Northern Ireland.”


                                                 3
“DPPs are making a significant difference to policing with the community and those appointed
will be at the forefront of shaping local policing and the Board looks forward to DPPs building
on the foundations already laid.”

“The Board will be considering how best it may support the Partnerships in the challenging
role of gaining the co-operation of the public with the police in preventing crime. The Board
commends everyone who came forward to serve their community and would urge all parts of
the community to support them in the important work that lies ahead.”




The Appointment Process
516 people applied for the unique posts. Those appointed as DPP Independent Members will
complement the „Political Members‟ of DPPs who have already been selected by their
councils to reflect the balance of parties in their respective council chambers.

Using statistics from the 2001 Census, and other data, to ensure each DPPs representative
make-up, the Board appointed 215 people – 120 Roman Catholics and 95 non-Roman
Catholics - to serve as Independent Members alongside the DPPs 239 elected members. The
process also led to one of the largest single appointments of women to public bodies in recent
years, with 129 females being appointed.


Having met the initial selection criteria, prospective Independent Members were interviewed
by their local councils who then forwarded to the Policing Board a list of candidates they
considered appointable.


Representative selection panels were established by the Board to consider the lists and
appoint the Independent Members. The councils‟ lists were anonymised before being
considered and panel members were unaware of the identity of each candidate before them.


The Policing Board‟s selection panels included Political and Independent Members of the
Board, as well as Independent Selection Panel Members. The entire process has been
overseen by three Impartial Assessors accredited by the Office of the Commissioner for
Public Appointments.




                                                4
Representative of the Community
The appointment process for Independent Members is designed to be rigorous, impartial and
transparent.


To ensure that the DPPs are as representative of the community as could be made, the
process has been developed to be as inclusive as possible. The selection panels considered
the make up of each area taking into account for example, the age, gender, religious
background, disability and sexual orientation of candidates.



Using statistics from the 2001 Census, and other data, to ensure each DPP‟s representative
make-up, of the 215 people appointed 120 are Roman Catholic, 95 are Non Roman Catholic,
129 are women and 86 are men.

Policing Board Chairman, Professor Sir Desmond Rea, explained that for the second time this
has been probably one of Northern Ireland‟s largest simultaneous public appointments, and of
the 215 Independent Members, the Board reappointed 133 existing Members while 82 were
appointed from the 516 who applied following an open and public competition.

“It is a legal requirement for the Board to ensure that the composition each DPP as a whole –
Elected Members and Independent Members together – is representative of the community it
serves, and therefore the Board took into account the community background, gender, age,
background, disability and sexual orientation of all candidates,” Sir Desmond said.

For example, while the 2001 Census gave the community background of Belfast as 49 per
cent Roman Catholic and 51 per cent non Roman Catholic, the community background of
Belfast DPP is 47 per cent Roman Catholic and 53 per cent non Roman Catholic. For Derry
DPP, the community background of the Partnership is 74 per cent Roman Catholic and 26
per cent non Roman Catholic while the Derry City Council area is 76 per cent Roman Catholic
and 24 per cent non Roman Catholic.


The age of Independent Members ranges from an 18 year-old Student appointed to serve on
Omagh DPP to a 78 year-old member who sits on Craigavon DPP.


                                               5
Independent Members have also come from all walks of life, from driving instructors to
teachers, nurses to photographers, students to community workers, hairdressers, farmers and
retired civil servants.


Independent Members have been appointed until the date of the next local government
election. The appointment of new Independent Members will therefore take place after the
2009 council elections; new Political Members will be selected by their respective councils.


                                             *****

Please note that the names of the Political and Independent Members of the District Policing
Partnerships may change during the lifetime of each DPP.


The names contained in this publication are of those Independent Members announced by
the Policing Board on 2 December 2005 and the first Political Members selected by their
respective councils in June 2005.

Additional Information

The role of the Northern Ireland Policing Board is to secure for all the people of Northern
Ireland an effective, efficient and impartial police service which will secure the confidence of
the whole community.


The Policing Board is an independent public body whose job it is to oversee policing in
Northern Ireland. It was set up on 4 November 2001 as a result of the Police (Northern
Ireland) Act 2000 – the legislation designed to put the recommendations of the Patten Report
on policing into practice. The Board is not controlled by Government and has strong
independent powers to carry out its work.


The people of Northern Ireland have a right to know what their Police Service is doing and
how it is performing. It is important that the community has real influence over the way it is
policed, and that effective systems are in place to make sure that police are accountable for
their actions.


The Chief Constable also has the right to act independently – this is called operational
responsibility. But he must, in turn, answer for his actions to the Board. This process is what
effective police accountability is all about.


In 1998 the Government set up an independent commission to review all aspects of policing.
This Commission was established as a result of the Belfast Agreement reached on Good
Friday 1998. The Commission (more commonly known as the Patten Commission after its
Chairman, Chris Patten) recommended creating a new Policing Board.


The purpose of creating the Board was to signal a new beginning for police accountability.


As announced by the Secretary of State on 31 October 2005, the Policing Board will be
reconstituted on 1 April 2006. A competition for independent members of the Board beyond
31 March 2006 has been launched. As part of the reconstitution exercise the political element
                                                58
of the Board will be appointed on the basis of using the d‟Hondt formula applied to the 2003
election results.


Membership of the Policing Board
For accountability to be properly established and for the Board to command the respect and
support of the community in holding the Chief Constable and the police service to account, it
must be representative of the community as a whole.

In accordance with the Independent Commission recommendations, the 2000 Act established
a Board of 19 - „Political‟ and „Independent‟ - members for a term of office of four years.

Ten Board Members are members of the Northern Ireland Assembly, appointed under the D‟
Hondt principles providing for political representation based on the strength of individual
political parties in the Assembly. These members of the Board are known as „Political
Members‟.

The composition of the political membership of the Board at the time of the appointment of the
DPP Independent Members was as follows:


Party                                Membership               Members
                                                              William Hay MLA

                                                              Fred Cobain MLA
Ulster Unionist Party                Four                     Sam Foster MLA
                                                              Lord Kilclooney MLA
                                                              Alan McFarland MLA

Appointed Under the D‟ Hondt principles Sinn Fein are entitled to sit on the Board. To date
the party has not taken its seats.


The remainder of the Board is made up of „Independent Members‟ appointed by the Secretary
of State for Northern Ireland following open competition. The Secretary of State appointed
the first Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Board. The Board, when reconstructed in April
2006 will elect, from among its members, subsequent Chairmen and Vice Chairmen.
                                                59
The nine Independent Members of the Policing Board are:

Viscount Brookeborough            Denis Bradley                     Brian Dougherty
                                  Vice Chairman
