INDEPENDENT.IE | Gardai call for 24-hour armed units across the country as gang feuding spreads
In Louth, where the ongoing feud has resulted in high visibility armed patrols for months, CEC member Derek O'Donoghue said, "frontline members need and deserve more armed cover.
Not Dundalk, Baltimore Co., MD, USA, the other one.
[CEC member Derek O'Donoghue]msaid gardai in Louth, "have dealt with explosives and firearms finds, the threat of ATM thefts - which was prevented in Carlingford, guns being discharged in Dundalk and Drogheda, pipe bombs and petrol bombs and that's only since January this year."
[...]
"The ASU in the Northern Region are an integral part of the policing response to threats posed by feuding criminals in Drogheda, the spate of cross border ATM thefts and the activities of subversive groups in the NorthWest. The challenges are immense and the risks very real to frontline members."

He said, "the only effective solution is to ensure that armed cover is available in each division.

Policing is a grand tradition here.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
