Policing Priorities 2018 was open for consultation with statutory consultees and other key stakeholders.
The Policing Authority has a function under the Garda Síochána Act 2005 to determine Policing Priorities for the Garda Síochána each year. The Policing Priorities are crucial because they influence the annual Policing Plan which sets out the actions, commitments and targets to be achieved by the Garda Síochána in that year.
The Authority has developed a set of draft 2018 Policing Priorities. These were informed by a number of activities which included a review of previous and comparator Policing Plans, engagement with stakeholders and consultation with the Joint Policing Committees.
The Authority intends to finalise these in September 2017 and in order to inform our thinking in determining these priorities, would appreciate the views of our statutory consultees and other key stakeholders.
