Vital Need For Community Policing

There is serious concern about the level of policing in our cities, towns and villages or the lack thereof. That's the message from Tipperary TD, Mattie McGrath.

Speaking on the back of the recent incident in Dublin where a Garda car was rammed, the Newcastle-based Deputy has said that people feel intimidated by gangs of young people taking drugs and engaging in antisocial behaviour of all kinds. Deputy McGrath cites the lack of gardaí as not helping the issue: "I salute the work they do but there are not enough of them and they do not have resources [they need]".
