Policing Authority welcomes GSOC investigation in the public interest

The Policing Authority welcomes the announcement by GSOC of its investigation, in the public interest, into the circumstances leading up to and including the death of Garda Tony Golden, the apparently self-inflicted death of Adrian Crevin-Mackin and the serious wounding of Siobhán Phillips, in October 2015.

The Authority places ongoing considerable emphasis on public confidence in the rule of law. Investigations in the public interest such as this are an important element in ensuring continued public confidence in our policing service.
