Annual Policing Plan for 2009 is Published

An Garda Síochána has published its Annual Policing Plan for 2009. The plan includes the priorities of the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform and is based on consultation with the community and other partners.

Cosc was consulted during the preparation of the Policing Plan and welcomes the specific commitment it includes in relation to addressing domestic and sexual violence.

Under Strategy Goal Two – Crime, an explicit key action is to ‘Ensure effective intervention in domestic violence incidents and crimes of a sexual nature’ and responsibility for achieving this action has been assigned to every Regional Assistant Commissioner.

The full Policing Plan is available on the Garda website.
