I worked with a fellow in the ME who had done a couple of tours in NI. He said it was quite weird in that they (the Brits) knew exactly who the PIRA leadership were and recognised them going about their normal lives on the street, but were unable to touch them because they (the Brits) had to stay within the law.
MTOW - Remember the 'B Specials'? They knew everyone, where they lived and what they were up to, so the IRA got them disbanded!
