Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. McDowell): Community policing has been, continues to be and will be fostered, developed and resourced within the Garda Síochána.
Community policing is one of the core means by which the Garda Síochána delivers its policing service. As gardaí depend on the community they serve, there is a strong organisational commitment to engaging with the community. In this respect, the value of community policing cannot be overstated.
