Finglas Safety Forum

Printer-friendly version

The Finglas Safety Forum was first established in 2004. It is an action-based, problem-solving forum where Dublin City Council and An Garda Siochana work in partnership with local residents to make Finglas a safer place to live in. The Forum provides an opportunity for residents, in partnership with statutory agencies, to develop plans that can make their areas better and safer places to live in.

Dublin City Council staff and members of An Garda Siochana are available at the meeting to deal with matters of concern to residents. Generally a presentation is made at each meeting on an item suggested by residents as being of interest to them.

Previous presentations included

  • Sale of alcohol to minors
  • Wandering horses, headshops
  • Burglaries and neighbourhood watch

The Finglas Safety Forum links into the North West Area Joint Policing Sub-committee. This committee meets quarterly and is attended by the five North West Area Councillors and An Garda Siochana. The committee covers the area of Finglas and Ballymun and a community representative attends these meetings.

The Community representatives are the link between the Safety Forum and the Joint Policing Sub-Committee. They bring issues from the Safety Forum to the Joint Policing Sub-Committee. They also bring information back to the residents on matters of concern to residents in the area.

When and where do meetings take place?

Finglas Safety Forum has three separate Neighbourhood areas - Finglas South, Finglas East and Finglas West. Bi-monthly meetings are held for each Neighbourhood.
