NEVILLE WELCOMES DELIVERY OF 305 NEW GARDA VEHICLES BEFORE YEAR END

 

Dan Neville, T.D. welcomed today’s announcement from Alan Shatter, T.D., Minister for Justice that 305 new garda vehicles will be delivered before the end of this year.  The vehicles are as a result of Minister Shatter securing €9million of funding in the Budget to update the garda fleet.  €5million of this will be made available before the end of this year, with the remaining €4million to be made available next year.

 

“The 305 new garda cars will provide a significant boost to the garda fleet, especially as they come in addition to the 133 new garda vehicles already purchased this year.  As we continue to improve the way that we police this country, it is very important that we continue to invest in garda vehicles to ensure that members of An Garda Siochana can respond quickly to incidents of crime.”

 

“I am sure that the delivery of these garda vehicles will greatly enhance the work carried out by our dedicated members of An Garda Siochana in keeping all our citizens protected.”
