Customer Question

Hi. I have bipolar and had a few admissions where I was detained/admitted by the garda. I need to be garda vetted for a course. Do these show up or are they medical. I have no criminal record.

1. Only criminal convictions will turn up on Garda vetting. In essence, detentions under the Mental Health Acts are not a criminal matter and they will not show up on Garda vetting, as they are a civil matter and don't concern the operation of the criminal justice system. The idea behind Garda vetting is to turn up criminal issue or child issues which will concern a person's ability to perform certain tasks. However, mental health issues are not something that is being vetted for as of now.
