What does Stronger, Safer Communities mean to you?

Fine Gael is building Stronger, Safer Communities


800 NEW Gardaí across Ireland this year

In 2022, Fine Gael in Government has ensured that over €3.15 billion is being invested to tackle crime in Ireland and make our communities safer for everyone. From combatting organised crime to preventing cybercrime to tackling domestic and sexual violence.

What does this mean? It means that there will be 800 new recruits to the Gardaí, 400 new Garda staff, new vehicles and equipment and targeted investment for specialist Garda units such as those to support the victims of crime, including domestic, sexual and gender-based violence. This is all part of our plan to have 15,000 members of An Garda and 4,000 support staff.
