What's the fascination with people wanting to arm traffic members? Traffic are good at whatever it is they do. 

I think in America putting a uniformed counterterrorism unit on the streets is s good idea and it gives peace of mind to the public. It's not needed here, we have the ERU and RSU, they don't need to be called anything different. It'd really be bypassing our needs and scaring the shite out of the public

I think currently public in Ireland have no clue about policing. I think they need to scary the shite out of to be honest, it works at checkpoint everyone talks armed gardas at it etc

People have no idea of the reasons for checkpoints, they complaint they don't see a Garda let's make things more shocking

Dog units on the streets during Busy nights!

Let's say something happens here

Every unit put on 12 hour shifts and double up then

Why do we need 9,000 in DF and only 12,000 ( ish) in the ags

Correct the a lot of the public haven't a clue about policing, until something happens and then they are quick to say what we should have done.

We only have about 15 dogs in the country so unfortunately not possible to put them out on the beat. They do go out in Dublin on busy weekends with the horses.

lets be honest to police the country properly we would need in the region of 18,000 members, the re-opening of small local stations and a modernization the likes of which would make senior officers shiver!

This. If the NYPD patrolled Ireland's streets with their resources and their officer to public ratio for a single week the public wouldn't know what hit them..

After last night's incident in Leytonstone tube station there is a need for more access to taser than we have at present.
