An Garda Síochána is in the process of hiring up to 210 additional vehicles to provide additional mobility to its members nationwide to provide increased community support and community engagement.

Speaking today, Deputy Commissioner Twomey stated: "As a community at this time, we need more than ever to support the most vulnerable in our society, particularly our elderly and isolated. An Garda Síochána has always worked closely with our communities and we continue to do so in these extraordinary times." 

These ‘contingency’ vehicles will be used to maintain personal interactions and, where needed, to assist and support people in collecting medical prescriptions or attending hospital appointments.
