The number of Catholic officers in the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) is slowly falling to 25 per cent. A key element of the Patten Commission’s bid to restart policing and the broader peace process is fragmenting.

Creating a policing service that reflects the society it serves is widely seen as beneficial to fair and effective policing. While reflection goes beyond religion, it was this imbalance that the Patten report identified as the most glaring problem. This imbalance was considered so severe that the government deviated from fair employment legislation to introduce the controversial 50-50 hiring policy, which applied for 10 years from 2001.
