'Root and Branch' review of Gardaí operations gets underway

The Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland is holding its first meeting today.

The 12-member body was set up to conduct a 'root and branch' review of Garda operations, following a series of scandals.

The controversies included the recording of nearly a million fake breath tests by Gardaí.

The commission is chaired by Kathleen O'Toole, the former chief of the Seattle Police Department.

It is due to issue a report by September next year.
