PSNI Chief Constable Matt Baggott defends recruitment
The chief constable of NI has told the assembly's public spending watchdog any police plans to employ temporary staff are properly scrutinised.
The Public Accounts Committee has been questioning Matt Baggott about an Audit Office report critical of the PSNI's recruitment of temporary workers.
It found that the PSNI had rehired almost 20% of RUC officers who had left under the Patten redundancy scheme.
Mr Baggott said steps had been taken to improve procedures.
