The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) was established as provided for in the Garda Síochána Act 2005. The mission of GSOC is to provide an independent, high quality and trusted system for dealing with matters involving the possible misconduct of members of the Garda Síochána, in a manner which respects human rights and promotes public confidence.

GSOC directly and independently investigates complaints against members of the Garda Síochána and is also empowered to investigate any matter, even where no complaint has been made, where it appears that a Garda may have committed an offence or may have behaved in a manner that would justify disciplinary proceedings.
