This thematic report has been produced to take a holistic view of different forms of Domestic, Sexual and Gender Based Violence. The associated incidents can include a wide range of crime and non-crime types and there is often a close association or overlap between multiple elements, for example, sexual violence may occur within a broader pattern of domestic abuse. Therefore, the information included is as broad ranging as possible. The report examines the trends in these abusive and violent incidents which have been reported to the Garda Síochána in recent years. The primary focus is on 2019 to 2021 to reflect most recent figures; longer-term trends since 2013 are included to provide further context. It is also important to note that during the three-year period of focus, the Covid-19 pandemic and associated restrictions represent a unique set of circumstances. Their impact on crime trends has been significant, as has the organisation’s response. Looking to 2022 and beyond, as all restrictions end, trends seen in this report may change again.
