RCIPS Officers Advance Through New Promotion Process

On Tuesday, 1st of February 2022, 34 officers successfully advanced in the RCIPS promotion process to the rank of Inspector and Sergeant at a ceremony held at the Westin Resort on Seven Mile Beach.

The Commissioner of Police Derek Byrne, along with his senior leadership team congratulated the newly promoted officers at the event and briefed them on the importance of their roles as leaders within the RCIPS, not only to supervise, mentor and coach new officers joining the organisation, but in setting the tone and standard expected of the police service, whereby professionalism, integrity, and service to the community are at its core.

Of the 34 officers, 10 were candidates for Inspector and 24 were candidates for Sergeant. "It is pleasing to see the hard work and dedication of these officers pay off, and the recognition they have each received through respective appointments", says Commissioner of Police, Derek Byrne.

Of special note is the significant number of female officers that have successfully advanced: two to Inspector rank and five to Sergeant rank, which is a move in the right direction to improving gender balance in RCIPS leadership positions.

This is the first promotion round following the development of a new policy put in place in 2021 that established a competency based promotion framework, where officers are put through a rigorous and competitive process in working towards achieving promotion. These officers have completed the competitive phases and as part of their continued development, they will each complete training and leadership programmes over the coming 12 months. This final phase is a work-based assessment segment during which they will be assessed for substantive promotion based on their performance in their new roles.
