Quarterly Policing Meeting

13th December, 2010

Attended the quarterly policing meeting in City Hall this morning. At this meeting Gardai and senior Council staff gave an update on local policing matters. At this meeting I raised the following matters-

First – the need to increase community policing presence at the Mountjoy Community Policing Meetings and in the surrounding area.

Second – questioning the discharge of firearms figures, particularly in the Cabra area.

Third – criminal behaviour in the Nottingham street area. Things have improved since the last meeting but it needs to be monitored continuously.

Final – a discussion about laneways in the Phibsborough area and some suggestions about how to reduce criminal traffic through them.

Gardai and DCC responded to the points I raised.
