An Garda Síochána

An Garda Síochána are available to help and support anyone who is a victim of domestic or sexual abuse. If you are subjected to this kind of abuse, or if you know someone who is, you should contact your local Garda station, or in an emergency call 999/112.

‘Operation Faoisimh’ has recently been launched by An Garda Síochána to assist victims of domestic abuse. Under the initiative, Gardaí will be making calls to victims who have reported domestic abuse in the past,  to protect families during the Covid-19 health emergency.

Domestic abuse incidents, including coercive control, will continue to receive highest priority response for service by Gardaí. There are more Gardaí than ever on our streets and in our communities and they are ready to assist and protect victims of domestic abuse.

For information, support and resources in relation to domestic abuse, please see the website of An Garda Síochána at
