We are proud to announce that An Garda Síochána will be exhibiting at Jobs Expo Cork. The event takes place on Saturday 25th November at UCC's Devere Hall, Aras na Mac Leinn.
An Garda Síochána is the national police service of Ireland. Their mission is to deliver professional policing and security services with the trust and confidence as well as support of the people they serve.
Following the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922, the Dublin Metropolitan Police merged with the recently established An Garda Síochána in 1925.
An Garda Síochána is a community based organisation with over 15,200 Garda and civilian employees. As a result, there are police officers in every county in Ireland, listening to, acting and working with the community.
The Headquarters of An Garda Síochána is in the Phoenix Park, Dublin 8.
The current Acting Commissioner is Dónall O'Cualáin.
Budget 2018 has provided sanction for the recruitment of 800 trainees as well as 500 civilians. The budget for 2018 goes a long way in helping to realise the long-term plan of increasing police staff to 21,000 by the year 2021.
A career with the police will be challenging, but also extremely rewarding. The roles are exciting, always presenting different and new experiences. Fighting crime is an evident function within the gardaí. However, roles also involves a great level of communication and partnership with all communities with the goal of keeping the peace and increasing the quality of life.
