Phibsborough Policing Meeting

13th February, 2010

I attended a public meeting last week of the new policing forum for Phibsborough. There was a strong turnout at the meeting from the local community. These meetings allow the raising of key local issues. These are then responded to by the council, the politicians and the Garda.

I have been a member of such policing groups for 6 years and have seen them do great work. I’m sure they’ll do the same here.

Key issues included private rental accommodation, derelict sites and the responsiveness of the local station. A lot to do but I know that these meetings are the most effective way of making things happen.
