When are liaison officers available?

Liaison Officers

Garda Family Liaison Officers (FLO) will be assigned to the family of a victim of murder, fatal road traffic collision or kidnapping and will be responsible for liaising with the family throughout the investigation. The FLO will provide timely and accurate information on the progress of the Garda investigation. They will also provide contact details of victim support organisations which are available to support victims and/or their families. If you require further information on the FLO service contact your local Garda Victim Service Office whose details are available by clicking here.

Garda Ethnic Liaison Officers (ELO) are trained to provide specific support and advice to victims of racist incidents. If you report an incident of racism, the Gardaí will inform you of the designated Liaison Officer in your area. The Gardaí also provide a Liaison scheme for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community.   Officers are trained to provide support to victims from the LGBT community and encourage reporting of homophobic crime.
