The Police Ombudsman’s Historical Investigations Directorate provides independent and impartial investigation, which is free from police, government or community interest.
The Directorate will on occasion discuss with such groups the services it provides, but will not share details about the progress or direction of its investigations.
It may on occasion investigate incidents that are subject of simultaneous investigation by the PSNI’s Major Crime Unit, its Legacy Investigations Branch or the State Coroner. The Directorate’s investigations are carried out independently.
None of its investigators have been previously connected to matters they investigate.
