To ask the Minister of Justice to provide a copy of (i) the complaints policy; and (ii) the code of conduct of the Police Federation for Northern Ireland, as required of a government funded body.

The Police Federation for Northern Ireland is not a government funded body. I do not hold a copy of any complaints policy for the Police Federation for Northern Ireland; any such policy is a matter for the Police Federation. Office-holders and members of the PFNI as PSNI officers are subject to the PSNI Code of Ethics. The Code is prepared and issued by the Northern Ireland Policing Board and is also reflected in Regulations. I have placed a copy in the Assembly Library. Public complaints against PSNI officers remain the responsibility of the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland.
