Ireland Police Breach Database Privacy

The Ireland Office of Data Protection identified inappropriate access to the police database in relation to well-known public figures and celebrities.

The findings, in a just published report, were described by Data Protection Commissioner Billy Hawkes as "particularly disturbing" since none of those whose data was breached had "major dealings" with gardai.

"Confidential information on six “high-profile” personalities on the Garda Pulse computer system was accessed “inappropriately” by members of the force."
