Assaults on Garda Members from 8th April 2020 to 23rd October 2021:

382 incidents correctly recorded as Assaults on Garda Members where spitting, coughing or sneezing are indicated in the narrative. The Garda member is recorded as the Injured Party. There are 29 incidents on Review/Clarification for this period.

The total numbers for the period from 8th April 2020 to 31st December 2020 indicate 252 incidents of confirmed Assaults on Members with 2 incidents on Review/Clarification for that period.

The total numbers for the period from 1st January 2021 to 23rd October 2021 indicate 130 incidents of confirmed Assaults on Members with 27 incidents on Review/Clarification for that period.

An Garda Síochána has created an initial set of data quality metrics which will be published monthly.

These together with our PULSE data quality framework will help provide users of Crime statistics with a confidence level in the quality of the underlying data.

This publication of quality metrics is another important milestone in the implementation of our data quality strategy.

There are five metrics being published at this stage with additional metrics being added during the remainder of 2022. These figures are operational and subject to change.

  1. Data Quality Incident Creation. 

The incident creation process, as outlined the Crime Recording Document, published here, summarises the process for the recording of Crime Incidents. The organisational goal is for the Garda Information Services Centre (GISC) to create > 95% of Crime Incidents. The below metrics show the trend from

November 2021 to October 2022 outline the % and numbers of Crime Incidents created at GISC versus locally at Garda stations by Garda Members. Note this figure includes the update to the CAD skeleton Incident. The Crime Counting Rules are not applied to these figures.

As per Graph 1, GISC is currently creating on average 72% of Crime Incidents.

Graph_1

  1. Crime Incident Reclassification.

The reclassification process, as outlined in the Crime Recording Document, published here, outlines the process for the recording of the reclassification of crime and non-crime incidents. The organisational goal is for the Garda Information Services Centre (GISC) to reclassify all incidents. Note this figure includes crime incidents reclassified and non-crime incidents reclassified to crime incidents. The Crime Counting Rules are not applied to these figures.

As per Graph 2, GISC is currently reclassifying on average 64% of incidents.

Graph_2

  1. Crime Incidents Invalidations.

Incidents are invalidated in PULSE when they are no longer valid incidents after investigation in line with the Crime Counting rules.

The organisational goal is for the Garda Information Services Centre (GISC) to invalidate all crime incidents.  The Crime Counting Rules are not applied to these figures.

As per Graph 3, GISC is currently invalidating on average 54% of incidents.

Graph_3

  1. Data Quality Assurance Checks on Crime Counting Rules.

GISC implemented a data quality check on sexual offences and fraud incidents to ensure the correct application of crime counting rules in 2018. This data quality assurance check reviews sexual and fraud incidents to ensure the correct application of the crime counting rules and also reviews possible incidents that should have the Crime Counting Rules applied.

The Crime Counting Rules are not applied to these figures.

As per Graph 4, GISC is currently performing this data quality assurance check for on average 39% of incidents which require this assurance check.

Graph_4

     5. Victim-Offender Relationship – Data Quality Coherency Check.

In July 2021, An Garda Síochána introduced a mechanism to record the relationship between the Victim and the Offender. Since then, GISC has implemented a data quality coherency check on the recording of the relationship to improve the recording of the domestic abuse motive attached to PULSE incidents.

Graph 5 presents the total number of incidents reviewed each month.

Graph_5

  1. Reported Date Later Than Created Date – Data Quality Coherency Check.

GISC has implemented a data quality coherency check on the date fields on PULSE.

Graph 6 presents the number of incidents in which the recorded Reported Date was later than the Created Date.
