Muslim Public Affairs Committee

"Despite a much-vaunted drive to recruit minority groups into An Garda Siochana in 2006, as few as twenty-five immigrants had actually made it into the ranks as of Sept. 2008. Not only is this figure woefully under representative of the immigrant community, but it is also a damning indictment against an organisation that claims impartiality in its recruitment process. Language was singled out as a barrier for many potential recruits; however, An Garda Siochana's discriminatory uniform policy is also a potential barrier to the recruitment of minorities, particularly those in the Sikh and Muslim communities."
