Local Policing Forums and District Management Committees Support

Local authorities work with An Garda Síochána (national police), elected representatives and community and voluntary groups to address crime, public disorder and antisocial behaviour and recommend ways to help reduce crime and improve public safety.

Carlow County Council is committed to supporting Local Policing Fora which provide a mechanism through which the community, the Gardai, and the Local Authority and other stakeholders as required come together to improve communication, share appropriate information and identify issues of concern in relation to policing, anti-social behaviour and estate management.

Local Policing Fora’s reports to the Joint Policing Committee can advise Carlow County Council and the Gardai on how to best perform their functions having regard to the need to do everything feasible to improve the safety and quality of life and to prevent crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour within County Carlow.
