The Garda Strategy Statement 2022- 2024 will set out An Garda Síochána’s long-term operational priorities, as well as the key focus areas within the organisation, framed by the actions contained in A Policing Service for our Future, the Government's implementation plan for the recommendations of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland.
I am informed that An Garda Síochána will take account of a broad spectrum of views in the formulation of the Strategy Statement. Focus groups will be held with ethnic and culturally diverse groups from within our communities, while formal correspondence will seek the views and input from Government Departments, local authorities, non-governmental agencies and community representatives, as well as individual members of the public.
An Garda Síochána recently sought input from the public in assisting them in developing the Strategy Statement. The closing date for receipt of submissions to the online survey was 7 May 2021.
These submissions will now be considered by An Garda Síochána ahead of the finalisation of the Strategy Statement.
