Garda Inspectorate Report on Reorganisation of the Force
The Sunday Times this week had a story of a report sent to senior members that suggest reorganising the force into three regions, a Dublin one and two others. Something along the lines of Police Scotland. It would also reduce the amount of Commissioner's and other Senior Ranks. Unsurprisingly the senior members are not in favour of the plan. I'd post a link but can't find it due to their paywall. - Home of the real emergency service personnel.
Gardai urged to axe senior staff
undefinedChief Inspector of the Garda Siochana Inspectorate, Bob Olson
A DRAFT report from the Garda Inspectorate has made radical proposals to restructure and streamline the force in an effort to reduce costs. 
It would mean a big cut in the number of senior officers including assistant commissioners, chief superintendents and superintendents. 
The report, titled Review of the administration and operation of An Garda Siochana, urges the Department of Justice and force management to reduce the number of garda regions from six to three. 
It suggests the creation of a Dublin region, with just two policing areas for the remainder of the country. 
The inspectorate, which is led by the Canadian police consultant Bob Olson, suggests a police force similar in size and structure to Police Scotland, which deals with a comparable number of crimes over a similar geographical area. Draft copies of the report, marked secret, have been circulated to garda management and department officials for their consideration. 
Sorry but HOW many copies of this do you want????
