Over recent years the opening hours of Rathcoole Garda Station have been cut back and the number of Gardaí stationed there have been reduced drastically. This is a matter of concern in the area. I support a call for a meeting with the Department of Justice to to address this.
Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure in their community. I want to see more Community Gardaí forums and diversion schemes, and to implement learning from how other communities work to avoid anti-social behaviour.
