"I will be making a very strong case for building partnerships to make Northern Ireland safer.
"These partnerships cannot just be at a political level, they must be across the criminal justice system and across our community."
So it will be from the people up to the political leaders that Northern Ireland can be made safer. Local partnerships in some areas would have been inconceivable 10 years ago, now that is the way forward. The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) really has come a long way in recent years in earning the trust across all communities. Now it is time to see if the communities are ready to help in securing a safer future for themselves and their children.
I'll let you know more once the speech has been made.
