Garda Commissioner Drew Harris pictured in Garda Headquarters, Harcourt Square, Dulbin today as he officially announced the new Garda Operating Model. Almost 1,800 additional gardaí will be deployed to frontline duties a part of plans to restructure An Garda Síochána. This will be achieved by recruiting more gardaí and more civilian staff between now and 2021, as well as redeploying existing gardaí. The new Operating Model for An Garda Síochána, which was announced by the commissioner, is thought to be the biggest restructuring of the force in modern times. RollingNews.ie photo.
