Dillon raises concerns over police handcuffing of 13-year-old

Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has spoken with the District Commander and Deputy Chief Constable of PSNI after a 13-year-old was handcuffed during a stop and search in Coalisland. 

The Mid Ulster MLA said:

“I raised serious concerns that a 13-year-old boy was handcuffed by the PSNI during a stop and search in Coalisland. 

“It is never acceptable to put handcuffs on a child. 

“I have contacted PSNI directly to raise these concerns and called for an urgent investigation.

“The PSNI should refer this incident directly to the Police Ombudsman.”
