If you have been thinking about becoming a Garda, there is a last minute chance to apply for the current wave of recruitment.

The Deadline has been extended to the Garda Trainee Recruitment Campaign 2018, from 3pm on Wednesday June 6, until mid-day Thursday June 7 2018.

The reason given is technical difficulties.

Go to for information about the campaign and to apply online. 

The Gardaí are encouraging all nationalities living in Ireland to apply.

"An Garda Síochána serves all of the community and would encourage everyone, and in particular, women, and those from diverse groups, to consider a career in policing. We recognise the importance of recruiting people from a wide cross section of the community so that we are representative of the increasingly diverse society we serve," a spokesperson said.

There are six informational videos available in Arabic, English, French, Irish, Italian, and Spanish on the Garda Facebook and Twitter pages.
