Lalor welcomes joint policing move 25.09.08

BUNCRANA councillor Daren Lalor has welcomed the launch yesterday of new guidelines for the roll-out of the remaining Joint Policing Committees (JPCs) across the State.
The Sinn Féin Councillor said the move would enable the Justice Minister to push ahead with the roll-out of the remaining JPCs including that in Buncrana.
"I have written to both the Buncrana town clerk and the Garda superintendent to urge them to press a head at the earliest opportunity," said Cllr Lalor.
"We in Sinn Féin believe that it is critically important that a genuine partnership exists between our communities and An Garda Síochána."
Cllr Lalor said it was also vital that the Gardaí are accountable to the local community and public representatives.

"I am confident from my meetings so far with the superintendent that through the roll-out of the local JPC, we will be able to deliver focused engagement between members of our community and the Garda Síochána.
"With the support of all the local stakeholders we believe that this JPC will have the potential to deliver on the ground for our community across Inishowen," added Cllr Lalor.
