Administrative Filter in respect of Garda Vetting Unit Disclosures

The Garda Central Vetting Unit has surpassed 320,000 applications processed for the year 2014.  The turnaround time for applications is running at a maximum of 4 weeks from receipt of the application in the Garda Central Vetting Unit and this turnaround time may be reduced depending on the results of our analysis.  Work is continuing at present to provide an online EVetting system in 2015 which will help reduce turnaround times whilst also allowing an applicant to track the progress of their application at all stages of the process.

On March 31st 2014, the Minister for Justice and Equality implemented an administrative filter to be applied to all Garda Vetting applications.  The administrative filter is a new procedure being applied by the Garda Central Vetting Unit to allow certain minor convictions over 7 years old to be removed from disclosures. 

Number of Garda Vetting applications processed:

Week ending 23rd January 2015: 4,363
Total Year to Date: 15,141

The administrative filter is available for your information here 
The process for obtaining Garda Vetting is as set out in this link

Text Alert system continues to grow - 1 million texts sent to over 100,000 people

Over one million text messages alerting people to potential criminal activity in their local area have been sent under the Text Alert system, according to new figures from An Garda Síochána.

The figures also show that there are more than 100,000 people signed-up to the scheme from 550 groups in towns and villages across the country.

Assistant Commissioner Jack Nolan said: "We have found that as an immediate, cost effective method of engagement with the communities we serve, Text Alert is invaluable. It would appear from these levels of usage the public also feel it is a valuable way to help prevent and tackle crime”.
