The Vice Chairperson of the Donegal Joint Policing Committee has said that smart policing will never replace the tried and tested model of having gardai on the beat, particularly in rural areas.
Cllr Patrick Mc Gowan was speaking at a special meeting of Donegal County Council to discuss recent crime in the county, particularly aggravated burglaries.
Cllr Mc Gowan said garda numbers remains a key issue in Donegal………

Among those attending the meeting is Superintendent Andy Archbold, who told the meeting that he was there to observe and take the concerns of the members back to the Chief Superintendent. He stressed he would not be taking questions, or addressing specific issues.
