Corporate Enforcer (ODCE) spent almost a year trying to secure transfer of six detectives from gardaí to tackle white-collar crime

The corporate enforcer was forced to wait almost a year for the allocation of half a dozen detectives despite repeated requests to An Garda Síochána.

Internal emails detail how ODCE director Ian Drennan grew frustrated as he tried to temporarily add manpower in his office, at one stage saying the gardaí had “clearly no intention” of transferring the officers in the foreseeable future.

You can follow the full saga in the records below from the original request all the way through to the intervention of Tánaiste Leo Varadkar.
