GRA conference gets underway

The Garda Representative Association says up to 1,000 officers are being assaulted every year.

The GRA's annual conference is calling for new legislation with tougher penalties to deter people from attacking Gardai.

Meanwhile the GRA says Noirin O'Sullivan has the association's 100 per cent backing to become the next Garda Commissioner.

The GRA conference will begin in Killarney this morning - with assaults on Gardai among the issues for debate today.

The rank and file body wants the Department of Justice and Garda management to publish details on the number and severity of incidents annually.

The GRA Deputy General Secretary John Healy says a new reporting system - introduced last October - shows cases increasing:

Delegates will also debate motions on recruitment and equipment.

This afternoon - the interim Garda Commissioner Noirin O'Sullivan will address the conference.

The outgoing GRA President John Parker says she has the association's backing to become Martin Callinan's successor:
