New Garda recruits at Templemore College, Co Tipperary yesterday, among 100 candidates selected from 27,000 applications.
The Government has insisted a new syllabus at the Garda College will encourage criticism, from new Garda members, of established practices.
They also claim the new training course will encourage recruits to question parts of policing culture without fear of colleagues’ reactions.
