Rank and file Gardai are calling for a mandatory prison sentence for assaulting members of the force.

Around 150 Gardai representing 10,500 GRA members are gathered in Galway for their annual conference.

The first topic for debate was to carry out an audit to establish the exact number of assaults on Gardaí and to track the prosecution of assailants.
