What we do
The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission is an independent statutory body.
It was established under the Garda Síochána Act 2005 which involved very significant legislative changes for policing in Ireland.
The Ombudsman Commission, under the Act, is required and empowered to:
- Directly and independently investigate complaints against members of the Garda Síochána;
- Investigate any matter, even where no complaint has been made, where it appears that a Garda may have committed an offence or behaved in a way that would justify disciplinary proceedings;
- Investigate any practice, policy or procedure of the Garda Síochána with a view to reducing the incidence of related complaints.
The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission will provide an independent and effective civilian oversight of policing. It will deal with the public’s complaints concerning Gardaí fairly and efficiently so that everyone can have confidence in the complaints system.
