Why should I report a crime?

If you are a victim of crime or, a witness to one, you should report this to An Garda Síochána as soon as possible. By sharing any information you have about a crime you can help An Garda Síochána solve crimes and potentially prevent future crimes from taking place.

We understand that there are occasions when you may find it difficult to report an incident, but be assured that during any criminal investigation we will listen, give guidance and support, and treat you with dignity and respect. If you have been involved in a serious or sensitive crime, we have specially trained staff who will understand your needs and look after any of your concerns.
