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 County Council
• Senior members of An Garda Síochána
• 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.
