An Garda Síochána Crisis What Crisis

Commissioner Harris Operating Model

The work of the Commission on the Future of policing was followed by the August 2019 proposals from Commissioner Harris setting out his version of what he termed a New Operating Model for the force. These are hypothetical proposals. They are based on assumptions and presumptions which are unprecedented, untested and uncosted. No economic or operational impact study has been undertaken on this initiative. The proposals are intrinsicallydestructive, and they pose an existential threat to the Garda Síochána. This judgment is not made lightly. Any knowledgeable experienced garda could easily explain the absolute fallacy of the Harris proposals. One of the great benefits of experience is to be able to recognise patterns and trends. These proposal for structural change is supposedly based on the findings of the Commission on the Future of Policing (CFP). This is not the case.
