“We are aware of video footage showing individuals removing Prison Service recruitment advertisements and posting anti-PSNI posters.
We offer our full support to all those working within these services, and to the recruitment process underway within the Prison Service.
There can be no place for those who engage in threats or intimidation towards those who serve the community as Prison Officers or within the PSNI. Those engaging in such tactics do not speak for the people who we represent as political leaders.
We encourage everyone in our society to consider the PSNI and the NI Prison Service as valuable career opportunities.”
