An Garda Síochána Strategy Statement 2022 – 2024  

An Garda Síochána Strategy Statement 2022 – 2024  

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Garda Strategy Statement 2022- 2024 page and making the first step towards contributing to shaping our policing service in the years ahead. An Garda Síochána’s Strategy Statement is more than just an aspirational document rather I see it as a roadmap, a way for us to achieve our goals and improve the service we provide to the public we are so proud to serve. An Garda Síochána is on a journey of change which is framed by the recommendations enunciated in Policing Service for the Future report, it is our intention to build on this.

What is An Garda Síochána Strategy Statement?

This strategy statement will set out An Garda Síochána long-term operational priorities, as well as the key areas we need to focus on internally in order to support them. It is presented in a concise way that should give the public we serve appropriate information about the direction we are going in.

Developing our Strategy Statement

An Garda Síochána will take account of a broad spectrum of views in the formulation of the Strategy Statement 2022 – 2024. Focus groups will be held with ethnic and culturally diverse groups from within our communities. Formal correspondence will seek the views and input from government departments, local authorities, non-governmental agencies and community representatives as well as individual members of the public.

What will the strategy statement actually get used for?

Firstly, An Garda Síochána Strategy Statement helps everyone who works in and with An Garda Síochána to understand our vision, as well as the strategic areas that we are focused on as a result.

Secondly, it establishes some key ambitions and objectives for An Garda Síochána that will need to be translated into operational reality, through transformational activity, day-to-day business and policing.

Finally, the document is a way of encouraging the communities we serve to participate and take an active role in the way we police in the future.
