Share this article


A major report on the future of the gardaí is expected to recommend wide-ranging reforms of the force.

The Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland will present its report in Dublin this afternoon.

It began its work last year, and has been looking at the operation and structure of both An Garda Siochana and other policing-related bodies like the Garda Ombudsman.

The report could also suggest the creation of a new intelligence agency, operating independently of An Garda Síochána.

Councillor Daithi Doolan is vice chair of Dublin City Council's Policing Committee, and is hoping to see radical recommendations in today's report.

He observed: "I think we need to have a step change in the approach of policing.

"We need to have drastically increased numbers; we need to make sure that policing moves towards a community-based form of policing; and we don't want to see a return to the images we saw last week of [police in balaclavas]."
