Protected Disclosures Policy

The Garda Commissioner Nóirín ÓSullivan has published the Protected Disclosures Policy.

Any member of An Garda Síochána who raises issues will be fully supported. Each and every Garda member must know they have the right and responsibility to raise their concerns and be confident that they will be listened to and addressed.

In recent weeks, a Protected Disclosures Manager has been appointed and An Garda Síochána have begun establishing a dedicated team who will be appropriately trained to oversee all matters related to protected disclosures.

In addition, we are working with external experts in this area such as Transparency Ireland to help us create an environment to ensure people speaking up are supported and protected in An Garda Síochána.

An Garda Síochána Advice on Motor Insurance Scam

Ghost Broking is a term given to two possible types of fraud relating to false Insurance documents.  

There are two ways to obtain a valid Certificate of Motor Insurance:

1. By purchasing one directly from a reputable Insurance Company that is authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

2. By purchasing one from an Insurance Broker otherwise known as an Insurance Intermediary that is authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

Rental Scam Awareness Advice to students and parents

Gardaí are advising people to be wary of rental scams, particularly at this time of year when students are returning to college. While rental scams occur throughout the year there is a spike due to a new generation of 3rd level students seeking accommodation.

The scams fall into three broad categories; (1) the scammer claims to be out of the country and can’t show you the property and requests a deposit, (2) the scammer is living at the property and shows a number of people around, gets a deposit from several people and disappears with the money; and (3) the transaction appears normal until the renter finds that the keys don’t work and the landlord has disappeared.
