Justice Minister To Ask Government To Establish State Security Group
A new group that will assess threats to State security is set to be established by the Cabinet, as one of 157 proposals made by the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland.
Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan will propose that all 157 recommendations which were made back in September be accepted in principle.
Minister Flanagan is expected to ask the Government to move to immediately establish the Strategic Threat Analysis Centre.
The centre will collate and analyse intelligence and assess threats to state security, and will answer to the Department of the Taoiseach.
Other recommendations include freeing more Gardaí for front line duties, Gardaí not being required to serve court summonses or attend inquests.
In addition, the proposal that redundancy package should be offered to members of the force will also be addressed.
