Residents and householders on both streets highlighted to me problems with repeated incidents of anti-social behaviour. It was made clear to me that homes were being targeted by youths and that bangers and fireworks were being dumped through letterboxes and into local homes. Following my being made aware of the situation, I organised a meeting for residents with the Chief Superintendent in Mountjoy Garda Station prior to the recent Bank Holiday weekend. The key outcomes of the meeting include:
– A commitment by Chief Superintendent Dan Flavin to put in place a targeted Policing Operation to identify those responsible for this repeated anti-social and criminal behaviour.
– Inspector Mulligan has been tasked with overseeing this operation that will see both uniformed and plain clothes officers policing the area to tackle the problems residents have been experiencing.
The Chief Superintendent requested that any and all incidents of anti-social behaviour continue to be reported to Mountjoy Garda Station. You can report these incidents by:
– EMAIL: DMR.NorthCentral.Community@Garda.ie
– PHONE: 01 666 8600
As your LOCAL Councillor but also as Chairperson of the Dublin Central Policing Committee, I would ask you to include me in any email reporting of incidents. My email address is RayMcAdam@gmail.com. I ask you to do this so that I can effectively monitor the situation but also to ensure that the Gardaí in Mountjoy continue to put the resources and personnel into policing the area visibly and deal with the problem in the most effective way possible.
