Prosecutions Division (P.D.)

The Prosecutions Division assigns PTI Provincial (or Regional) Prosecutors to raise formal criminal complaints regarding matters forwarded by Council. These complaints are then lodged with An Garda Siochana, ‘served’ on the respective accused, and published in the PTI Annual Listings. These Listings may also be used to ground formal applications for criminal summonses in the District Court under Section 10 of the Petty Sessions Act and/or to initiate citizens arrests under Section 4 of the Criminal Law Act 1997.
