Complaints To Garda Ombudsman Increases

The number of formal complaints of alleged Garda misconduct increased by over 11 per cent last year.

The Garda Ombudsman received 1,956 complaints in 2020 - but only 11 breaches of discipline have been found so far, according to files released through Freedom of Information.
There were 200 fewer complaints in 2019. It's believed the Coronavirus lock-down measures have led in part to the increase in complaints.
