I am informed by the Garda authorities that Gardaí from Santry and Clontarf Sub-Districts police the area referred to by the Deputy. One Sergeant and six Gardaí are attached to each of the Community Policing Units at Clontarf and Santry Garda Stations. These Community Gardaí liaise with the local community and proactively target crime including public disorder and anti-social behaviour.

I am further informed that local Garda management is satisfied that a full and comprehensive policing service is being delivered to the area referred to by the Deputy. The area is subject to regular patrols by uniform and plain clothes personnel, including the Community Policing Unit supplemented by the Garda Mountain Bike Unit, the District Detective and Drug Units, the Divisional Crime Task Force and Traffic Corps personnel.

Current policing plans in the area are designed to address issues of crime and public order offences, including the prevention of public order offences; the prevention of crime including crimes of violence against persons and property and the maintenance of an environment conducive to the improvement of quality of life of residents. This strategy is central to the delivery of the policing service to the area in question.
