The government's revised plan to complete the reform of the Royal Ulster Constabulary is a long and complicated document.
While most of its measures are already known - and many are already being implemented under the previous scheme - it includes a number of key changes to complete reform:
Policing Board to meet in October to make appointments to the District Policing Partnerships
Oversight Commissioner (responsible for monitoring reform) to conduct a review of reforms starting in March 2002 and published in October 2002.
The new name of Police Service of Northern Ireland to come into force with the passing out of the first new recruits
New badge, symbols and flags to be decided by the government after consultation with the new policing board.
Government to reconsider the disqualification from district policing partnerships of people with serious convictions.

Government to change the wording regarding the circumstances under which a chief constable can appeal a demand from the policing board to report on the actions of the force
