COMMUNITY GARDA

Community policing occurs where GardaĆ­ and members of the community and statutory and voluntary agencies work together to:

  • Prevent crime
  • Prevent anti-social behaviour
  • Reduce the fear of crime
  • Promote inter-agency problem solving
  • Bring offenders to justice
  • Improve the overall quality of life

Aims of Community Policing

  • To provide the people in an area with their own dedicated Garda, someone with whom they can discuss everyday occurrences and build up a strong and supportive personal relationship.
  • To help the residents of an area to prevent crime by supporting crime prevention initiatives such as Neighbourhood Watch and Community Alert.
  • To work with other social agencies in an area to help curb crime and vandalism.

REPORTING ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOR

Louth Local Authorities employ two full – time anti social behaviour investigations officers to deal with ASB in local authority houses/ estates.
Their remit extends to:

  • Local authority tenants
  • Rental Accommodation Scheme
  • Leasing tenants
  • Residents of purchased local authority houses who are not the owners.

Louth has an Anti Social Behaviour form that can be completed where people wish to make a complaint about anti social behaviour in their estates.
If you wish to make a complaint you will need to complete an application form and then return to your local housing office.

Contact details Louth County Council, Housing Section at 042 9353 160 or housing@louthcoco.ie
