The gardai are advising statutory, voluntary and community organisations that work with children and vulnerable adults, of the need for them to be compliant with vetting legislation.

Speaking at the first ever Garda National Vetting Conference today, Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey said that the Garda National Vetting Bureau has established a compliance unit that will be conducting regular checks on organisations to ensure they are adhering to their statutory obligations.

While the gardai will provide advice and guidance to organisations to help ensure compliance, Deputy Twomey advised organisations that they are liable for prosecution for significant and/or repeated breaches of the National Vetting Bureau Acts 2012 to 2016.
