A number of gardaí are under investigation after they continued to cancel 999 calls without going through the proper procedure. The Policing Authority has been told that a further 53 emergency calls were cancelled without a proper policing response, even after previous improper cancellations had been highlighted publicly and new procedures had been put in place. Earlier we spoke to CEO of SAFE Ireland Mary McDermott and got her reaction to this news and more on this we’re joined by Bob Collins, Chairman of the Policing Authority.
