Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas


FCPNS for ES vehicles
#1
Surely something needs to be done at this stage re the amount of fcpns being issued to ES vehicles. It's a waste of AGS manpower issuing them & the other ES time answering them. Not all calls warrant a blue light response so why issue the bloody things. Is the whole discretion part gone now?.

You can blame the Whistleblowers for the removal of common sense.

But you shouldn't have to. It's political policing, if it's an ES vehicle the ticket shouldn't even issue

Political Correctness pervading policy. Our political masters are so damn afraid of standing up for estate since whistle-blower whose issue was with off duty use of private car but certain TDs couldn't let a chance to kick AGS go
