In May 2016, Kenny revealed a number of serious instances of misconduct in the Garda Síochána. The main allegations included that gardaí were engaging informants who were active criminals, outside the Garda Covert Human Intelligence Sources programme. He also mentioned a number of instances including "robberies allegedly carried out by informants under the direction of gardaí", cases of entrapment made at the behest of Garda handlers, and an instance where "senior gardaí did not inform other members of the force of plans by a criminal gang to carry out attacks at the homes of gardaí".
He also stated that two gardaí had brought this to the attention of both Martin Callinan (former Commissioner of the Garda Síochána) and the disgraced former Minister of Justice, Alan Shatter, but their concerns were ignored.
