Arabic videos used in the most recent Garda recruitment drive were viewed more than 10,000 times — the most popular foreign language version of the campaign.
A batch of Garda recruits has been deployed to Limerick to receive special on-the-ground training from experienced officers who have put their lives on the line to protect the city from gangland criminals.
The head of the Association of Garda Superintendents says the force needs 800 new recruits a year, to keep up with the required modernisation programme.
Six hundred new gardaí will be recruited next year, bringing the total number of new recruits since September 2014 to 1,150.
The President of the AGSI said today that the latest round of garda recruitment will do little to ease pressures on the front line.
