Naughten seeks reassurances regarding Garda HQ

In Business & Jobs, Mid-Roscommon, News by Denis Naughten

Local TD, Denis Naughten has sought reassurance from Minister Charlie Flanagan that Roscommon Town will retain its status as a Garda Divisional Headquarters in any re-organisation of Garda Divisions.

“Recent reports on a draft proposal for the Garda re-organisation of the force is suggesting that the Roscommon/Longford Division would be merged with Mayo under the changes which are due to be introduced at the end of the year” said Denis Naughten.

“This would mean that there would be a single Garda Divisional Headquarters for this new super-division and the current Garda HQ in Roscommon Town is geographically well suited to service this expanded area”.

“While I understand that no final decision has been made on the re-configuration of the divisions and any subsequent changes in personnel that might take place as a result, people are naturally concerned that Roscommon could lose out in the process” concluded Denis Naughten.
