He said, "The Policing Board is confident that Mr Jones has the necessary ability and skills to join the Chief Constable and his Senior Officer team and build on the progress that has been made in policing to date."

"The Board is responsible for securing the delivery of an effective, efficient, impartial and accountable police service which will secure the confidence of the whole community by reducing crime and the fear of crime.
