Community Engagement Offices

The Garda Racial, Intercultural & Diversity Office

The Garda Commissioner established the Garda Racial, Intercultural & Diversity Office (GRIDO) in April 2000.  Staff members of the GRIDO coordinate, monitor and advise on all aspects of policing in the area of diversity.

Garda Youth Diversion Office

The Garda Youth Diversion Office at the Garda Bureau of Community Engagement is the national office for the management and implementation of the Diversion Programme.

The Diversion Programme offers young people who accept responsibility for their offending behaviour the opportunity of a Caution instead of going to Court. The caution is administered by a Juvenile Liaison Officer (JLO) and a period of supervision may be included.
