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 27th February 2015: 6,396
Total Year to Date: 43,327

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


2015 Policing Plan ...

An Garda Síochána has published its 2015 Policing Plan on the 10/2/15

The Plan incorporates the Minister for Justice’s policing priorities for the year ahead and takes into account the short and medium terms recommendations in the Garda Inspectorate’s recent report into crime investigation.

The Plan is focused on the renewal and reform of An Garda Síochána. It places a strong emphasis on preventing crime from taking place, but when it does, that it is investigated thoroughly and professionally, and victims of crimes are provided with a consistently excellent support service. Maintaining the organisation’s community focus and the security of State are also key elements of the Plan.

The Plan sets An Garda Síochána on a path of renewal and innovation, putting victims and the citizen at the centre of the service we provide.
