Submission to the Commission on the Future of Policing

The Commission welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland.

This submission focuses on human rights and equality standards and references international treaties and best practice.

This submission does not constitute an extensive review of all human rights and equality issues connected to policing. Instead, bearing in mind the Terms of Reference of the Commission on the Future of Policing, the purpose of this submission is to outline some priority human rights and equality issues that arise in the following context:

  • the delivery of policing services;
  • the performance of police operations;
  • policing oversight and accountability.
