Frank O’Rourke TD and Cllr Michael Coleman have welcomed the confirmation that a permanent Community Garda will be appointed to Celbridge Garda Station within the next two months.
Frank commented, “I’m pleased that the Garda resources are strengthening in Celbridge. This was a commitment both myself and Cllr Michael Coleman got when we met Garda management last year. This is further positive news for Celbridge and I will continue to keep a focus on having further resources allocated to Celbridge and Kildare. Last year, I raised the relatively low level of Garda numbers in Celbridge and in Kildare generally, and called on the Department of Justice to fairly distribute Garda resources. Kildare has one of the lowest level of Garda numbers in the country. The numbers are now improving incrementally In Kildare, and we need further additional resources allocated to the different locations in Kildare.”
“I do want to acknowledge that we have made some progress in terms of Garda numbers in the last 2 years in Celbridge, but we must make further progress and bring Kildare in line with the national average. I want to thank the Gardí for the continued commitment on this important issue. I will continue to press the Minister for additional Garda resources.”, concluded Deputy O’Rourke.
