Kenny welcoming new Garda moves

The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors says the announcement of 120 extra inspectors is ‘timely and much-needed’.

Justice Minister Helen McEntee says the number of Garda inspectors will rise from 380 to 500.

The AGSI says it’s part of the reform of Ireland’s policing model, which will put more workload on inspectors.

Slig0/Leitrim Sinn Féin TD and the party’s justice spokesman, Martin Kenny, is also welcoming the news.
