In 2001 only 3% of the population in Ireland was described as a minority group, now that population has increased to almost 12%.

Sergeant Dave McInerney from the Garda Bureau of Community, Diversity and Integration, who has over sixteen years experience working with minority groups in Ireland talked to Crimecall about the benefits of constant community engagement with Minority groups in Ireland.
 
Minority groups are people who are perceived as different from the majority of the population, such as a black person, a member of the travelling or LGBT community, or a Muslim, their difference makes them vulnerable and that in turn can lead to crime being committed against them. Minority groups, such as asylum seekers or refugees may not trust a police force and Sergeant McInerney encouraged all members of minority groups to engage with their local Gardaí if they need help, advice or assistance.

Ethnic Liaison Offers are assigned to each Garda Division, for details see attached link
