The Garda Commissioner says disciplinary investigations are underway in relation to cancelled 999 calls.

More than 200,000 emergency calls were cancelled between 2019 and 2020.

Over 3,000 of them related to domestic violence.

An independent report also found inaccurate information recording meant officers were sent to the wrong locations.

Not A System Failure

Garda Commissioner Drew Harris says the force is not putting it down to a systems failure:

The penman report is very clear about the individual actions of Gardai as well.

"Discipline appointments have been, have been made. "

"That means discipline investigations are ongoing."

"There has been public accountability, and indeed the Minister herself has held me to account as well."
