Public Accounts Committee

2017 Annual Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 20 - An Garda Síochána
Chapter 7 - Management of Overtime Expenditure in An Garda Síochána

Mr. Drew Harris:

There are 500 members, but we have recently recruited a further 100. Experience in other jurisdictions shows that serving in such a reserve force is a good route into policing for those who are less well represented in the main force. It allows a chance to see what the organisation is like and a route to joining it.
