Operation Fanacht goes nationwide 07.10.20

GARDAÍ have re-commenced Operation Fanacht nationwide, throughout all 26 counties in Ireland. This policing operation is focused on supporting public compliance with the public health measures. It follows the government’s decision to move the country to level 3 of the National Framework for Living with Covid-19.
Under level 3, people are being encouraged not to travel out of their county unless for essential reasons.
In support of this announcement there will be high visibility patrolling by gardaí. This will involve 132 large scale checkpoints a day on main arterial routes around the country in addition to mobile checkpoints on secondary routes in towns and villages.

Speaking yesterday, Deputy Commissioner John Twomey, Policing and Security said, "An Garda Síochána will continue to play our part to assist and support people, particularly those who are vulnerable and feeling isolated. Your local gardaí are here to help whether that is delivering medical prescriptions, collecting your pension or other supports you may need. Any person with these concerns for themselves or for a neighbour please contact your local garda station.”
Operation Navigation, which focuses on compliance with public health regulations by licensed premises, will continue and An Garda Síochána will enforce penal regulations using a graduated response. Where gardaí find potential breaches of the public health regulations a file will be prepared for the DPP.
