Numerator: An Garda Siochana, 2009
Denominator: CSO, 2009


In November 2014, the Garda Inspectorate published a report called “Crime Investigation” which raised serious concerns about the recording of crimes on the Garda PULSE (Police Using Leading Systems Effectively) system. Since PULSE is used to produce CSO (Central Statistics Office) recorded crime statistics, the CSO could not continue to publish official crime statistics without a full review. The CSO then began a comprehensive review of the accuracy of Garda Síochana crime data.

The findings from the review indicated some issues with the way crime is recorded by An Garda Síochana, hence the publication of recorded crime statistics was temporarily suspended by the CSO to carry out the review. At the end of June 2015 the CSO has decided to resume publication of recorded crime data, albeit advising users to consider these issues when interpreting crime statistics.
