There were nearly 2,200 official complaints against Gardaí last year.

According to freedom of information files, it's an increase of 12 per cent on 2020 when GSOC received 1,955 complaints.

That increased to 2,189 last year and they involved 3,719 allegations.

35 per cent of the allegations, or just over 1,300, were in Dublin.

Of all the allegations nationally, seven related to sex offences and six were about the misuse of drugs. There were 50 in relation to criminal damage.

However, only 17 breaches of discipline were identified in last year's complaints.

341 complaints were in relation to Covid matters, up from 295 the previous year.
