“A decision was taken, by the PSNI’s Service Executive Team on 24 March, to temporarily suspend all legacy investigations and to refocus this resource to support the PSNI’s response to Operation TALLA (the UK police response to Covid-19).  Legacy Investigation Branch (LIB) was one of a number of functions within PSNI that were redeployed in order to provide immediate resilience to PSNI’s critical functions.  

“Following a meeting of the PSNI’s Service Executive Team on Wednesday 22 April it was agreed that this temporary suspension would be lifted and that officers and staff within Legacy Investigation Branch would resume their normal duties with effect from 01 May 2020.  Having implemented a range of social distancing measures we have been able to limit the numbers of COVID-19 related absences to levels which have allowed us to sustain service delivery across the organisation and in this case return officers who had been providing resilience to those functions to their core roles.”
