An Garda Síochána acknowledges the decision of the GRA "to ask certain units or specialist roles to respond positively to requests by management to provide cover from 7am November 4 2016 to 7am November 5 2016”.
Members and staff of An Garda Síochána have had to endure professional and personal challenges over the last number of years. Despite those challenges, which have affected individuals and their families, the members of An Garda Síochána have shown undiminished dedication to duty. The results of this dedication and commitment are clearly shown in the prevention and detection of crime in communities throughout the country every day.

An Garda Síochána is focused on providing a policing and security service that protects and supports communities from 7am November 4 2016 to 7am November 5 2016.

An Garda Síochána will hold an information briefing on this later today at Garda HQ at a time to be confirmed.
