Gardaí release details of convictions for officers following appeal by Right to Know

By | 1st August 2020

Twenty two members of An Garda Síochána have been convicted of a crime over the past three and a half years.

The records – released under FOI for the first time by the Internal Affairs Section of the gardaí – detail a range of different convictions for officers.

The convictions cover drink driving, misuse of drugs, sexual crime, and an offence under the Child Trafficking and Pornography Act.

The gardaí said details of disciplinary action taken against the convicted officers would not be released because it was “of a personal nature to the individuals involved”.

They said they needed to confidentially maintain details of its disciplinary proceedings and that this outweighed the public interest in knowing what, if any, sanction had applied to the gardaí involved.
