More Gardai needed in rural parts of East Galway and Roscommon – Cllr. Dolan

More Gardai needed in rural parts of East Galway and Roscommon – Cllr. Dolan

More gardai need to be deployed in rural areas of East Galway and South Roscommon to ensure people feel safe in their homes and to deter crime. That’s according to Councillor Aisling Dolan, Fine Gael election candidate for Roscommon – Galway.

 

It follows recent reports that there was no garda at the scene of a collision in Cloonarkin for more than an hour and a half because they were not available in Roscommon garda station or Ballinasloe. “This kind of situation is unacceptable, and I’ll be communicating with the Joint Policing Committee to get some answers. I will also liaise with the Community Liaison for Roscommon.”

 

Fianna Fail in government closed Templemore garda training college with the last graduates in 2011 for a number of years. Since then Fine Gael has lifted the embargo on garda recruitment and 1,800 new gardai have graduated since 2017.

 

“There are more gardai trained to be on the beat now than there has been in years, so Roscommon and Galway need to have resources deployed. With the new model of divisional policing which was rolled out late last year, there should be more gardai available to work in communities, not involved in paperwork. I want to make sure that these gardai come to Roscommon and Ballinasloe and other areas where there has been rural burglaries and in local communities to give elderly people peace of mind.”
