The President of the Association of Garda Superintendents says that 20% of them are under investigation, and the investigations can take up to 5 years

That obviously is a crazy resourcing problem, and he calmly calls for more resources:
RTE- 20% of Superintendents under investigation by GSOC
He called for GSOC to be properly resourced to carry out such investigations and for a proper legal structure to be put in place for those under investigation.
Given especially what we know from the Disclosures Tribunal, it seems paramount that GSOC be properly resourced

Also aside from the malfeasance, bungling is probably a greater issue.

It is in the interest of Fine Gael, the joke "law and order" party to keep their filth and corruption uncovered so don't expect to see any funding soon!

GSOC too understaffed to investigate protected disclosures, says chairperson
The Chairperson of the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission has said they have not been sufficiently resourced by Government to deal with protected disclosures made within the force.Ms Justice Mary Ellen Ring was responding to the details contained in a confidential report from GSOC, which was obtained by RTÉ's This Week.It reveals that the Ombudsman had sought more than twice the number of staff it was ultimately given to investigate serious allegations made by garda whistleblowers.

Perhaps the AGSI could instruct their members to cooperate with GSOC and not to deliberately mislead or delay investigations, GSOC could them make better use of current resources.
