Nine months after Noirin O'Sullivan stepped down, a new Garda Commissioner has been appointed.

Drew Harris is currently the Deputy Chief Constable of the Police Service in Northern Ireland. Mr Harris has 34 years policing experience, including 12 years in senior leadership roles.

He was appointed to the rank of Assistant Chief Constable responsible for Crime Operations in the PSNI in 2006 and has served as Deputy Chief Constable since 2014.

The Justice Minister, Charlie Flanagan, said “Drew takes up office at a time of major reform and investment which will redefine An Garda Síochána as an organisation."

"Drew can be assured of my support and that of the Government as he faces the challenge of transforming An Garda Síochána so that it becomes a model of policing excellence, equipped to deal with the huge range of challenges facing police services worldwide", he said.
