Gardaí To Patrol Wicklow Train Lines To Detect And Prevent Anti-Social Behaviour.

Gardaí are to engage in a special operation that will see them patrol the DART, Luas and eight inter-city rail routes

Gardaí are to engage in a special operation, 'Twin Tracks', that will see them patrol the DART, Luas and eight inter-city rail routes to prevent and detect anti-social behaviour.

One of the eight InterCity routes that will be patrolled is the line between Wicklow and Wexford, incorporating Bray, Greystones, Wicklow, Rathdrum, Arklow, Gorey, Enniscorthy, Wexford, and Rosslare stations.

High visibility patrolling will operate between the hours of 3pm and 11pm on each day within the Dublin Region (Connolly & Heuston Stations) and nationwide on eight intercity routes. Meanwhile local Crime Prevention Officers and Community Policing Gardaí will deliver crime prevention advice at community engagement/crime prevention stands at a number of stations from 3pm to 8pm.

The key objectives are:

• To ensure public safety by addressing anti-social behaviour
• Protecting life and property
• To engage with the public and provide crime prevention advice
• To support Irish Rail and Transdev Ireland personnel in tackling these issues
• Vindicating the human rights of each individual
• Preventing crime, bringing criminals to justice, through the detection and investigating of crime, and improving rail safety.
