Address the imbalance in Garda resources in Co. Kildare

    1. Catherine Murphy
    2. Petition by

      Catherine Murphy

      Dublin, Dublin, Ireland, Ireland

Kildare has the worst Garda staffing ratio in the country. For many years, a consistently high growth rate in the population has not been adequately planned for, with the result that levels of common crimes, in particular burglaries, have reached very high levels. This petition seeks to highlight this issue with the Minister for Justice and Equality, Alan Shatter TD in an effort to draw his attention to the matter and to illustrate the support that exists in Kildare for a fairer way of allocating Garda resources.

      Celbridge houses have been burgled more than 25 times over the last 3 months, including my uncles house!

      with a town as big a Celbridge, the community need the protection of the Garda and the right to services. Celbridge is no longer a little village and needs to have a service based in the local community. The station in Leixlip is not accessible to people as is not on bus route. Crime would be high in the Celbridge area.

      I've been burgled twice, garda response was totally inadequate on both occasions. Virtually no garda presence in Kilcock, Anti social behaviour goes unchecked and is on the increase as a consequence.
