WHAT DOES PSNI MEAN IN ENGLISH?

PSNI

Police Service of Northern Ireland

The Police Service of Northern Ireland is the police force that serves Northern Ireland. It is the successor of the defunct Royal Ulster Constabulary which, in turn, was the successor to the Royal Irish Constabulary in Northern Ireland. Although the majority of PSNI officers are still from the protestant community, this dominance is not as pronounced as it was in the RUC because of affirmative action policies. The RUC was a highly militarized police force and played a key role in the violent conflict known as the Troubles. As part of the Good Friday Agreement, there was an agreement to introduce a new police force initially based on the body of constables of the RUC. As part of the reform, an Independent Commission on Policing for Northern Ireland was set up, and the RUC was replaced by the PSNI on 4 November 2001. The Police Act 2000 named the new police force as the Police Service of Northern Ireland ; shortened to Police Service of Northern Ireland for operational purposes. All major political parties in Northern Ireland now support the PSNI.
