Speaking on the increased uptake of female gardaí, Commissioner Drew Harris says they're trying to strike a gender balance.
"Strength in a team comes through diversity," Harris said.
"That strength also comes from bringing skills and a range of thinking to what are very difficult and complex problems."
"All these are important around public confidence and also our success as an organisation."
"We want to see more women join and we want to see more women from ethnic minorities join as well."
