Extension of 50-50 'anti-Protestant' - Belfast Today
A STATEMENT by the chairman of the Police Federation that it
would support an extension of 50-50 recruitment, if government financial support is forthcoming,has been slammed as "anti- Protestant" and "utterly immoral".
On Wednesday, the union which represents rank-and-file PSNI officers
said it would support the extension of the controversial 50- 50 recruitment process, which is due to end next year, to combat the dissident republican threat which it says has the PSNI at breaking point.
