The Streets Are A Little Safer Today


Garda Commissioner Drew Harris

Drew Harris was being driven back to Garda Headquarters at around 5.30pm when he saw a car being driven in an erratic manner in Blanchardstown.

The Commissioner contacted the Roads Policing Unit and the woman was stopped.

She was subsequently arrested and tested for alcohol and is expected to be prosecuted.

Nobody likes a whistleblower snitch.

        Dr. Raymond Stantz : What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
        Dr. Peter Venkman : Exactly.
        Dr. Raymond Stantz : Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
        Dr. Egon Spengler : Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…

        Dr. Peter Venkman : Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

      Yes; this came up here before and I remember him well , especially the show’s opening sequence.

    “Roads Policing Unit” what were they called previously? Why did they change their name? I wonder how many breathalyzer kits this used up?

        yes until they had to be “rebranded”
        “A REPORT COMMISSIONED by the Policing Authority into the Garda breath test scandal has found that gardaí reported checkpoints that didn’t happen, and that around 400,000 more breath tests were falsified than earlier reported.

        The body says the initial internal report carried out into the matter gives the authority “no comfort” that the force has grasped the importance of what happened, or taken ownership of the problems highlighted.
        The new report, carried out by consultancy firm Crowe Howarth and published this afternoon, criticised the gardaí for what it described as an “inadequate pace of response” to the issues and a “lack of organisational curiosity and urgency” to understand why they occurred.
        Chairperson of the Authority, Josephine Feehily, said at a press conference today that she wants the incumbent Garda Commissioner, Dónall Ó Cualain, to “reflect” on the report’s findings.”

      Precisely. Who called Garda Reynolds with this exclusive? Also, what was the “incident”, did Drew or his Garda driver have more interaction with the suspect than is being revealed here.

    Was he being driven back after playing golf? If he was playing golf was he not off duty? Maybe it was a “working game of golf”.

    Policeman calls other policemen to do his job. Like postmen reporting letters onto letterboxes

    Technically it’s overtime too , so a …..3 hour OT claim form should do it? better make that 6 hours, after all who will check, right? God bless the police force.

    I suppose we should be grateful that he wasn’t joyriding with his PSNI buddies again.
