Joint Policing Committee

  • What is the Joint Policing Committee?

    The purpose of the Joint Policing Committee is to provide a forum where matters that affect policing in Galway can be discussed.

    Members of the Central Area Joint Policing Sub-Committee

    Members of your Joint Policing Sub-Committee include:

    • Galway City Council
    • Senior members of An Garda Síochána
    • Councillors
    • Your elected members of Oireachtas na hÉireann (TDs and Senators)
    • Local community representatives

    Meetings usually take place four times each year.


  • What are the revised Guidelines for the operation of Joint Policing Committees?

    Arising from the review process and taking into account the establishment of new local government arrangements, revised guidelines for the operation of JPCs were approved by the Minister in August 2014.

    The guidelines are presented in three formats – a summary of the revision made to the previous (2008) guidelines, a consolidated version showing changes from the previous guidelines and a complete version of the revised text.
