Money may not be the solution, the solution is to make sure these people are properly treated,
It is unique to Northern Ireland for officers to come under live fire in what was a public order situation,
My officers, as I have said before, acted like heroes in the face of the worst public disorder this police service has ever witnessed,
Officers are delivering, are reducing crime and if a fifth of them were not team players that would not be the case,
It gives us no pleasure to stand in numbers between communities who refuse to engage with each other to resolve their differences but until they do we will continue to do our job and it will continue to cost money on this scale.
The challenges to policing have never been so varied, ranging from international terrorism, the serious disorder currently so graphically displayed in my world, through to community policing.
