Almost 100 people were targeted in paramilitary-style attacks in the North last year.
Most were assaulted – but 36 were shot, according to police figures. The number of cases has increased in the past year.
Dissident republicans opposed to the peace process have stepped up their activity level in recent weeks.
A Police Service of Northern Ireland statement said: “Senior police officers have also been very vocal over the last 12 months, about the need for community support to tackle the issue of paramilitary-style attacks.”
During 2014/15, there were 94 victims as a result of paramilitary-style attacks, the service said.
