An Garda Síochána Annual Policing Plan 2017

An Garda Síochána has published its 2017 Policing Plan which sets out the policing priorities for 2017.

The Policing Plan is based on feedback from both internal and external stakeholders, including the Minister for Justice and Equality. It is also informed by the Garda Síochána Strategy Statement July 2016-2018. The plan embraces the many developments and initiatives taking place under our extensive five-year Modernisation and Renewal Programme.

For 2017 our policing focus will be on five key areas: National and International Security, Confronting Crime, Roads Policing, Community Engagement & Public Safety, and Organisational Development and Capacity Improvement.

The 2017 Policing Plan is different from previous Policing Plans as, for the first time, the priorities and performance targets have been determined in consultation with the Policing Authority. The Policing Authority will throughout 2017 regularly monitor how we deliver against those targets. This will include regular reporting on the progress of the Modernisation and Renewal Programme. The result of this collaboration is a Policing Plan that clearly shows our key priorities for the year, how we will deliver them, and how we will measure their success.

The initiatives outlined in our 2017 Policing Plan will make a real difference to the communities we serve.
