Garda Commissioner Drew Harris speaks on the measures being put in place by An Garda Síochána to maximise its ‘operational effectiveness’.

Garda Commissioner Drew Harris has written to a number of senior officers who are due to retire in the next few weeks asking them to stay on in the national interest.

Among those asked to remain working in the force is the Assistant Commissioner in charge of policing Dublin, Pat Leahy. He was due to retire at the end of this month. It is understood he has agreed to remain in his post.

Over 300 students from the Garda College Templemore are to be attested as gardaí next week and allocated to garda stations all over the country….

“In national security matters and matters around the State, it is my obligation to report to the government as you would expect me to do.

Also, we have been contributing to the IRC (Independent Reporting Commission) reporting on the status of various paramilitary groups and we would hold with their opinion on these matters.

I am also aware of the PSNI and the British security services assessment and we do not differ from that view.”
