Divisional review of drug offences is underway locally

A divisional review of drug offences is underway in Cavan and Monaghan.

In response to a Parliamentary Question by local Deputy Niamh Smyth, the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald stated that the Divisional Officer of the Cavan/Monaghan Division has commenced a review of drug offences in the Division.

Of the 33 seizures made by Gardaí last year, drugs were discovered in multiple local areas some of which don’t have a full time Garda Station.

The findings of this evaluation will assist in determining the appropriate Garda strategies and policing plans in tackling the drug problem in the region.
