Love them or hate them, we all know that Road Policing Units "Black Rats" are a much needed department in any Police Force. Some bright spark in the PSNI has decided that the Force no longer needs a Police Traffic Branch. Under the proposals, police district commanders would take charge of policing roads in their areas. The Province has had 9 deaths on the Road in just over a week and they think the budget money would be better spent elsewhere than having the expertise of a dedicated Traffic Unit. Shame on you Mr Orde!!
