Tell the Gardai what you think . . .

RESIDENTS in Ballyfermot and Cherry Orchard now have an opportunity to present their say on policing in the community – through emailed submission to Chief Superintendent Lorraine Wheatley.

Ballyfermot Garda Station 3 01062017

The submissions are part of a consultation process by An Garda Síochána in preparation for the development of the Garda Síochána Policing Plan 2018.

Chief Superintendent DMR West Division Wheatley said: “This consultation process involves having a nationwide conversation where we reach out to as many service user groups as possible to obtain a wide and hopefully representative range of views on what areas we should be focussing on next year.

“Previous consultation processes largely concentrated on the development of a national policing plan. This year we are looking for your input to support not just the development of our national Policing Plan but our regional and local plans also.”

The Policing Plan 2018 comes within the framework of the Garda Síochána Strategy Statement 2016-2018. Consultation will be based around key pillars of the strategy, including national/international security, confronting crime, roads policing, and community engagement.

The DMR West Division covers a number of areas including Clondalkin, Ballyfermot, Palmerstown and Rathcoole.
