Garda operation begins to support Covid-19 restrictions

Gardaí have begun a major high visibility policing operation to support the new public health restrictions to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Over 2,500 gardaí will be deployed every day on 132 static and mobile checkpoints, to community patrols and to support for the elderly and the vulnerable.

Gardaí say there will be high visibility patrols at parks, beauty spots, beaches and public amenities and they will also continue to support victims of domestic abuse.

During the previous tightening of restrictions earlier this year, Gardaí said it responded to a 43% increase in calls from women who were trapped with abusers at home
