Garda Commissioner Drew Harris is to meet Majella Moynihan to apologise for the way she was treated in the force over 30 years ago.
The force has confirmed that arrangements are being made for Commissioner Harris to meet with the former garda.
It comes after Ms Moynihan publicly told her story for the first time in an RTÉ documentary.
She explained that she was threatened with dismissal when she had a baby with a colleague outside of marriage in the 1980s.
Ms Moynihan, who was 22 at the time, was subject to an investigation after she became pregnant.
She was charged with two counts under the 1971 Garda Síochána Regulations, relating to premarital sex and giving birth outside marriage.
She ultimately kept her job, although was also summoned and questioned at a hearing on the conduct of the child's father.
Ms Moynihan gave birth to a son in 1984, and the child was given up for adoption.
Ms Moynihan remained in the force until 1998, when she left having sought early retirement.
Over the weekend, Commissioner Harris issued a statement apologising to the former garda "for the manner in which she was treated and the subsequent lifelong impact this had on her".
In a separate statement, Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan echoed the apology.
He said in a statement: "As a young Garda, Ms Moynihan faced an appalling ordeal at a time in Ireland that was sadly too often characterised by stigma and intolerance.
"What happened to her was clearly wrong on every level."
