South East Area Joint Policing Committee

Printer-friendly version

The Dublin City Joint Policing Committee was established in 2006.  Five Sub-Committees were established to correspond to the five operational areas of the City Council. 

South East Area Joint Policing Sub-committee

The South East Area Joint Policing Sub-Committee meets on a quarterly basis. This committee provides a forum where a local authority and the senior Garda Officers policing the local area participate with the Oireachtas members and community interests to consult, discuss and make recommendations on matters affecting the policing of the area

Dublin City Council in conjunction with the Gardaí and the local community representatives are committed to improving public safety, prevent crime and to identify crime patterns and contributory factors to crime and anti-social behaviour throughout our area. 

Local Policing Fora

The Garda Síochana Act 2005 provides for the establishment of Local Policing Fora at neighbourhood level. It was decided to prioritise the establishment of Local Policing Fora in local authority areas where local drugs task force operates.

In 2011 three Local Policing Forums were established in the South East Inner City Drugs Task Force Area. Forums were established in Pearse Street, Ringsend and in the Charlemont/Whitefriar Street area.

The fora meet on a regular basis and updates are provided to the South East Area Joint Policing Sub-committee quarterly meetings. Issues discussed at the meetings include the levels and patterns of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour in the local area (including the patterns and levels of misuse of alcohol and drugs) and the factors underlying and contributing to the levels of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour in the area. These fora are intended to operate in a more informal way than the Joint Policing Committees and deepen the engagement between Gardaí, the South East Area and neighbourhood communities.
