Recently appointed Assistant Commissioner to head up new Eastern Garda Region, new county Waterford Superintendent announced
A woman with 31 year’s experience in the Garda Síochána in strategic and operational policing roles will head up the newly created Eastern Garda Region with responsibility for the Waterford area.
Assistant Commissioner Anne Marie Cagney, who was appointed as Chief Superintendent for the Dublin Metropolitan East Division in February, 2018, assumes her position with immediate effect.
Meanwhile, another significant Garda promotion that will impact on the force locally was also confirmed this morning. Paul O’Driscoll has been appointed as the Superintendent for the Tramore Garda District, also with immediate effect.
Assistant Commissioner Cagney was previously a Detective Superintendent with national responsibility for Human Trafficking Investigations and Organised Prostitution Investigations.
She is also a trained Senior Investigating Officer and manages and coordinates the investigations of major crimes.
Superintendent O’Driscoll has most recently been working with the Strategic Transformation Office and has previously worked in the Garda Training College in Templemore.
Kilkenny will be the headquarters of the new and much larger Eastern region, with responsibility for Wexford, Waterford, Carlow, Kildare, Wicklow, Laois, Offaly, Meath and Westmeath. South Tipperary, from the old South Eastern region, will now be moved into the new South region.
Under the new model, the Waterford division is to merge with the Kilkenny/Carlow Garda division. The headquarters of the division will be based in Waterford.
