COUNTY CLLRS CALL FOR SWIFT ACTION ON RURAL CRIME

Published

on

County councillors are calling for swift action to address the rise in rural crime across rural Galway.

The lengthy debate on rural crime levels followed the distribution of a report from the county Joint Policing Committee for 2012.

Cllr Mary Hoade referred to the weekend aggravated burlary at the parochial house in Caherlistrane and said that the ban on garda recruitment must be urgently lifted.

Cllr Michael Fahy said a review is needed of the free legal aid system so that criminals are not encouraged to continue in such a regard.

Cllr Jim Cuddy supported calls for a recruitment drive and said there has been a complete cutback in garda transport and that the public deserves a decent service.

Cllr Tomás Mannion questioned Ireland’s move towards ‘modern policing’ and said ‘career criminals’ must be dealt with.

However JPC County Chairperson Cllr Peter Roche defended modern policing and told Galway Bay fm news that it’s a new approach which will work with the help of the community.
