I had the misfortune of being on a transatlantic flight for far too many hours yesterday, and I was flicking through the hopeless selection of movies searching for something to numb the boredom.

I was amazed and surprised to see that Whistle-blower, the Maurice McCabe documentary was on there. If you were flying to Ireland and saw that you'd ask the pilot to change course and go somewhere less corrupt like Cuba or Angola instead.

Garda ‘inertia, resistance’ frustrated reform for years, says McDowell




Former minister for justice and attorney general Michael McDowell has welcomed the Garda reform plan, saying “inertia and internal resistance” had frustrated previous efforts to reform the force.

He said this had been the case in slowing civilianisation to a halt, causing may planned reforms to also come to a stop as a result.

Mr McDowell also said he believed Garda Headquarters, Phoenix Park, Dublin, had become a place where far too many Garda members had spent their time working in administrative posts, displacing them from operation policing.

He “warmly welcomed” the plans by Garda Commissioner Drew Harris to reorganise the force.

Those plans, unveiled on Thursday, involve reducing the number of Garda divisions from 28 to 19 and better resources for those divisions.

The chief superintendents who will run each division will be tasked with drawing up their own policing plans and will be granted autonomy to run their own division like a mini police force.

While some chief superintendents and superintendents positions were expected to be lost, Mr McDowell believed “churn” of senior personnel had resulted in vacancies that needed to be filled by officers at that level.

The process of filling those vacancies had been “severely debilitated” by the promotional process in its current form, he said.

Mr McDowell was justice minister when the first reports of the Morris Tribunal, into corruption in the Donegal division, were published.

The government at the time responded by introducing the Garda Síochána Act 2005.

Among other reforms, the Act created the An Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (Gsoc) to investigate complaints made about Garda members and matters of public concern related to policing.

In a statement on Friday, Mr McDowell, now a Senator, said the 2005 Act had always envisaged the type of reform now being unveiled; specifically a greater number of civilians to bring more professional expertise into non-policing roles in the Garda and allow more gardai to work on the frontline.
