The purpose of the Joint Policing Committee (JPC) is to provide a forum where Senior Garda officers, Oireachtas members, representatives of Galway City Council and the community and voluntary sector can consult, discuss and make recommendations on matters affecting the policing of Galway. Galway City Community Network elects five representatives to the JPC.
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. To download a copy of the guidelines please click here
