So, about those Garda reforms.

Via RTÉ

…In a strongly-worded report ]the Policing Authority] it said that if An Garda Síochána does not pause to reconsider the way its efforts and resources are being directed, then it is of the view that a continuation of the current activity will not deliver the fundamental reform envisaged.

Neither, it says, will it deliver an improvement in the quality of working life for those within An Garda Síochána, or an effective, responsive, modern policing service for communities….

Meanwhile..

The authority said there has been no clarity as to how the gardaí is using an increase in garda numbers of 800 each year to produce more effective, responsive policing….

…Under training, the authority gave the example that up to 800 gardaí are sworn in a year without the ability to operate garda vehicles as it is not included in their basic training.

Good times

    What a farce, this corrupt organization is unwilling to reform itself and just goes through the motions on these exercises. It’s time to disband them and form a new force similar to what was done with the ruc up north.

    ‘In a strongly worded report…” Feehily wasn’t too concerned with any such reports when dealing with the Ansbacher thieves.

    up to 800 gardaí are sworn in a year without the ability to operate garda vehicles as it is not included in their basic training.
    …… and there are calls to give these people guns.
    There is no way that this could end badly, on the bright side think of the potential memes!

    “…Under training, the authority gave the example that up to 800 gardaí are sworn in a year without the ability to operate garda vehicles as it is not included in their basic training.”

    I thought the job of the Garda College was to train the Gardaí, what on earth do they do there?

      Give hundreds of hours in human rights and ethics lectures. Because that’s what they’ve been told to give. At some stage the Penny will drop and you have to train the Police in Proper policing.
