The first ever Garda graduates in fraud and e-crime investigation were presented with their post-graduate qualifications on Thursday.
In all, 44 members of the force completed training in a skills area increasingly necessary in 21st century law enforcement.
Graduates had studied for the post-graduate certificate at University College Dublin (UCD) and came from a variety of regions and national units.
The qualification enhances the investigative ability of gardai to pursue serious and complex fraud offences.
