A chief superintendent has been suspended from duty over allegations he had taken "secret photographs" of a female colleague and then allegedly distributed the photos to other gardaí.

His suspension was announced after a long-running internal investigation headed by Assistant Commissioner Michael O'Sullivan.

The officer is based in the west of Ireland and he has been under investigation for alleged bullying and sexual harassment against his younger female colleague who is a civilian member of the force.

However, the investigation has recently broadened out into other areas and the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission has been informed.

The suspension was authorised by Garda Commissioner Drew Harris yesterday.

The appointment of Mr Harris in September 2018 has led to an increased focus on discipline within the force.

In June, it emerged that the number of gardaí suspended on suspicion of serious misconduct has almost tripled since 2016, according to figures released by An Garda.
