The Commission on the Future of Policing is encouraging Ireland’s minority communities to take part in an important public consultation on the future of policing. 

 

The commission’s open evening from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday 24 January at the Crowne Plaza in Blanchardstown is one of a number of such events taking place around the country. 

 

On the night, members of the public will have the opportunity to meet commission members in an informal setting to discuss the future of policing in Ireland.

 

“Dublin 15 is one of Ireland’s most multicultural and diverse communities, and I’m delighted that the commission will be in Blanchardstown on 24 January as part of our nationwide meet-and-greet programme on our important work,” said chair Kathleen O’Toole.

 

“As we work towards a blueprint for policing in Ireland, it is essential that we hear directly from the very communities that a police service seeks to serve and protect, and that includes people who are new or recently moved to the community.”

 

The Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland was established by Government last May to develop a blueprint for the Garda’s work and relationship with the public in Ireland, via an independent, comprehensive examination of all aspects of policing in this country, including An Garda Síochána and its oversight bodies.

 

Through these public meetings and our call for submissions, the commission wants to stimulate a genuine national conversation on the future of policing in Ireland – so we would encourage everyone with an interest in the issue to come to our open evening in Blanchardstown and send us their views and opinions. All of these perspectives will help to inform our work,” said O’Toole.

 

Members of the public are invited to make submissions online at policereform.ie before the deadline of Wednesday 31 January.
