According to Policing Board research confidence in the PSNI has never been higher.

“Eighty six per cent of respondents have some, a lot or total confidence in the PSNI’s ability to provide a day-to-day policing service for everyone in Northern Ireland,”

According to the ICR, confidence in the policing in working class loyalist communities is at an all-time low and there is a risk of crisis of expectation in nationalist communities.

“Political events along with the policing of parades have compounded the sense of community alienation with the PSNI which for many has been ignored at a political level with the continued focus on republican communities.”
“There is a currently is a ‘honeymoon’ period involving the PSNI and the republican community. However, it was apparent that at some stage, if the community’s expectations are not being met and concerns continue around the service delivery of policing, then the honeymoon period could end.”
