I’m delighted that the Gardai have confirmed that a Protective Services Unit is to be located in the DMR West region by the middle of this year. This was confirmed to me in response to a question I had put down at last weeks meeting of the Fingal Joint Policing Committee.
Nationally, the Protective Services Bureau deals with a range of specialist crimes including sexual and domestic violence, the management of sex offenders prosecuting organised prostitution and investigating missing persons. It is an important development that Dublin 15 will now have a unit specialising in dealing with these crimes, located in the area.

Can the Superintendent provide an update on the roll out of a Divisional Protective Service Unit in DMR West?
The Protective Services Unit is scheduled to be in place during Q2 2017.
