Written answers (Question to Justice)

I have been informed by the Garda Commissioner that competitions are ongoing at present to fill vacancies in all three ranks specified. Interviews are being held at the moment in the Sergeant and Inspectors competitions. The Superintendents competition was advertised last month.

The sanctioned vacancies for each of the specified ranks will be filled with the successful candidates at the completion of the competitive process.
