Dissidents will create fear with PSNI list – Byrne – names and rank revealed
Chief Constable Simon Byrne says information mistakenly released in a major data breach is in the hands of dissident republicans.
The data includes the surname and first initial of 10,000 Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) employees.
It also includes rank or grade, where they’re based and the unit in which they work.
Simon Byrne said the information could be used to “intimidate or target officers and staff”.
In March, the terrorist threat level in Northern Ireland raised from substantial to severe, meaning an attack is highly likely.
