Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has provided for the establishment of the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC Foundation to mark the sacrifices and honour the achievements of the RUC.
One of the functions of the foundation is to oversee development of a Garden of Remembrance and a new RUC Museumthis will draw together both projects into a complete "RUC experience" where visitors can reflect on the sacrifices of the RUC as they walk through the Memorial Garden and visit the many exhibits and displays about the RUC and its history in the Museum.
Tragically, murdered officers leave behind bereft family and friends, and the foundation will undertake joint initiatives with the Widow's Association, Disabled Police Officers' Association and other members of the police family.
Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: The Acting Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland has confirmed that all staff (including catering staff) working at the Castlereagh police complex are security cleared. The arrangements for this security clearance are in accordance with existing best practice.
