The Ulster Unionist Party’s representative on the Policing Board, Alan Chambers MLA, has condemned the attempt to intimidate the community in parts of Londonderry by erecting anti-Police posters featuring the image of an officer who was seriously injured in a bomb attack.
Alan Chambers said:
“The people who put up the anti-Police recruitment posters in parts of Londonderry are cowards who are beneath contempt.
“Unlike the brave men and women who put on a uniform and serve the entire community with great courage on a daily basis, these fools hide in shadows and live in a fantasy world where they actually believe they matter.
“Peadar Heffron is worth a thousand of them.
“I welcome the cross party condemnation of these posters and I urge people not to be intimidated by these thugs, who are trying to isolate the Police from the wider community. They must not be allowed to succeed.”
