The Police Service of Northern Ireland aims to make Northern Ireland safer for everyone through professional, progressive policing. We achieve this goal through policing with the community. This proactive, community-driven approach sees the police and local community working together to identify and solve problems.
There are 11 policing districts within Northern Ireland, with police officers and staff delivering a community-focused, local service to neighbourhoods and residents.
The Northern Ireland Police Service has around 6,900 police officers and 2,600 police staff. The service's direction and control is vested in the Chief Constable, whom a Deputy Chief Operating Officer and Service Executive Team assist. The Police Service of Northern Ireland faces the same challenges as any other modern police service. It is, however, the only routinely armed service in the United Kingdom with the unique additional challenge of policing in the context of a substantial terrorist threat.
