Police officer with citizen in town

As part of their response to the Fresh Start Agreement issued by the Northern Ireland Assembly, PSNI are working with the Centre for Policing Research and Learning on the design, delivery and evaluation of a new learning intervention which aims to improve community engagement in target neighbourhood areas. 

PSNI have developed a skills framework for officers working in communities based on collaborative problem-solving which they would like to test out in terms of impact on officer practice, and ultimately on community relations. Broadly speaking this encompasses: 

  • Collaborative working
  • Problem solving
  • Listening and negotiation skills
  • Conflict handling
  • Community assets mapping
  • Critical thinking
