Listen: AGSI Questions The Need For Root & Branch Review Of An Garda Siochana.
The AGSI has questioned the need for the Government’s planned root and branch review of the force in the wake of the breath test and wrongful conviction scandals.
Mid ranking gardai, of whom there are c.55 stationed in the Kildare Divison, are holding their annual conference in Killarney – which will be addressed by the Garda Commissioner this afternoon.
AGSI members won’t comment on the latest problems within the force – citing the various inquiries taking place.
But General Secretary, Eadestown resident John Jacob, has questioned whether it was necessary to carry out an external review by a body other than those already tasked with garda oversight
