New head of Criminal Assets Bureau named

The Garda Commissioner has appointed Chief Superintendent Mick Gubbins as Chief Bureau Officer in the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB).

He succeeds Pat Clavin, who was recently appointed by the Policing Authority to the rank of Acting Assistant Commissioner


Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan said Chief Superintendent Gubbins, who previously headed the National Cyber Crime Bureau, would bring “extensive skill and experience” to the position.

CAB is a multi-agency statutory body established under the Criminal Assets Bureau Act 1996 to fight organised crime and disrupt the activities of criminal gangs.

Its objective is to target assets which derive, or are suspected to derive, directly or indirectly, from criminal conduct.
