CJI publishes terms of reference for review of Police Ombudsman's independence

12/05/2011
Dr Michael Maguire has published the terms of reference for an inspection of the operational independence of the Office of the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland.  Work on the inspection will commence immediately and It is CJI's intention to seek to publish the inspection when it is completed. View press release.

The objectives of the inspection are to examine:
  • the adequacy of the policy and procedures in place to ensure and support the operational independence of the OPONI;
  • the operational activity of the Office in relation to the conduct of investigations, and the nature of the working relationship with the PSNI in the discharge of its duties; and
  • the outcomes of the work of the Office.
The Inspection will be carried out in line with CJI's full inspection methodology which can be viewed at www.cjini.org
