Policing Reform

The Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland (CoFPI)has published a report outlining a clear vision and roadmap for strengthening An Garda Síochána and the broader national framework for policing, security and community safety.

A wide-ranging consultation undertaken by the Commission led to the development of 10 key principles for the future of policing in Ireland, and a comprehensive recommendations to meet not just current, but also future challenges.

A High Level Implementation Plan has been developed in cooperation with stakeholders from across the public service and, in particular, with the Department of Justice and Equality and An Garda Síochána to implement the recommendations contained in the CoFPI Report.

This four-year plan is ambitious, but realistic. Throughout the implementation process, the Policing Reform Implementation Programme Office will be reviewing and updating this living plan as required on a biannual basis and maintaining ambitious but realistic commitments, timeframes and milestones.
