Office of Corporate Communications

MEDIAThe Office of Corporate Communications is the main point of contact for media seeking information about Garda operations, criminal investigations, missing person appeals, fatal road accidents and a wide range of other information concerning the Garda Síochána organisation.  

The Office is headed by a Director of Communications who is assisted by the Garda Press Officer (Superintendent), Head of Corporate Communications (Superintendent) and Head of Internal Communications (Assistant Principal). These offices are staffed by Garda members and Garda staff who deal with queries from the media.

Other functions of the office include attendance at major emergencies/incidents, organising and setting up press conferences, facilitating interviews, and liaison with film makers/documentary makers. The office is also responsible for the maintenance of the Garda website and the publication of the Annual Report. 

The Office of Corporate Communications also has responsibility for CrimeCall. The programme plays a vital role in assisting An Garda Síochána with its work on various live investigations, circulating crucial crime prevention advice and traffic safety messages, and issuing important public appeals.

The Garda Press Office is open from 7am to 11pm, 7 days a week. Outside of these hours a restricted service is provided by the Command and Control Centre.
