Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2003

Section 3: Board’s policing objectives

9.This section amends section 25 of the 2000 Act. The previous requirement under section 25 was that the Board frame its policing objectives so as to be consistent with the Secretary of State’s long term policing objectives for Northern Ireland set under section 24 of the 2000 Act. The effect of the amendment is that, in determining its objectives for the policing of Northern Ireland, the Board must take account of, rather than be consistent with, the Secretary of State’s long term objectives under section 24 of the 2000 Act.
