Garda Inspectorate launches its Domestic Abuse Victim Survey
The Garda Inspectorate has today launched an on-line survey to gauge how victims of domestic abuse are dealt with by the Garda Síochána. This survey is part of an on-going inspection into the effectiveness and efficiency of the Garda Síochána’s response to domestic abuse.
Deputy Chief Inspector Pauline Shields, who is leading this inspection said, “Hearing from victims and survivors of domestic abuse is an important part of our inspection. I would encourage anyone who has been a victim of domestic abuse to take this opportunity to tell us about their experience with the Garda Síochána. She continued, “I want to assure people that the survey is completely anonymous and any information supplied to the Garda Inspectorate will be treated in the strictest confidence.”
The Inspectorate will refer to the results of the survey in a published report relating to this inspection.
