Chambers congratulates Drew Harris on his appointment as new Garda Commissioner

The Ulster Unionist Party’s Policing Spokesperson, Alan Chambers MLA, has congratulated the PSNI’s Assistant Chief Constable Drew Harris on his appointment as the new Garda Commissioner.

Alan Chambers MLA said:

“The appointment of Drew Harris as head of the Garda is a tremendous personal achievement and on behalf of the Ulster Unionist Party I wish him every success in the role.  

“His appointment to this prestigious position obviously reflects well on the calibre of the command structure of the PSNI, but is also a tribute to the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC, the force which Drew Harris joined in 1983.

"The RUC has been much maligned by those who wish to re-write history, but as an ex-RUC Reservist myself, I take a degree of satisfaction that a former RUC man is now the top police officer in the Republic. I am confident that he will be a success because his training will have been second to none and I wish him every success in his new role.”
