A lot of research was presented verbally and in other ways to the committee that helped to make this report what it is. I commend everyone involved in that regard. All of us can recite incidents of types of crime in our communities, much of it similar but some of it more aggressive and violent than others. I...

Sometimes, we can quote...

Community Policing and Rural Crime: Motion (20 Jun 2019)

Maureen O'Sullivan: The title of the report is Report on Community Policing and Rural Crime. It has been a welcome report but looking at the title, I am not sure if it is helpful to distinguish between rural and urban crime because crime is crime.

Most of my constituency is quite rural and over the last number of years, like everywhere throughout the State, we have seen a massive increase in crime.
