O'Toole named vice chair of Dublin Joint Policing Committee
Sinn Féin Councillor Larry O'Toole has been named vice chairperson of the Dublin Joint Policing Committee at its inaugural meeting this afternoon. Speaking after his appointment councillor O'Toole said he will use his new position to strengthen the committee and to promote genuine partnership between the Gardaí and local communities.
He said, "I am very pleased to have been appointed vice chair of the new Dublin Joint Policing Committee. I will work in this capacity to strengthen the powers of the committee and to promote genuine partnership between the Gardaí and local communities.
"People across Dublin will be looking to this committee to offer solutions to the scourge of anti-social behaviour and open drug dealing in our communities and I will be working to ensure that is exactly what they get.
"Sinn Féin is calling for a series of public meetings to take place across the city in the coming months to allow greater input on these issues from local communities. I would encourage as many people as possible to attend these meetings." ENDS
