The Gardaí in Killarney are delighted to announce that on Sunday, the 25th March 2012 Killarney Garda Station will be the venue for an Intercultural Open Day. The Inspector of Killarney Garda station with the assistance of Garda Ethnic Liaison officers Sergeant Dave O’Connor, Garda Diane Collins and Garda Brendan O’Donovan are inviting members of ethnic minorities and members of the travelling community to the open day in Killarney Garda Station on Sunday the 25th March 2012 from 12 - 2pm.
To celebrate International Day against Racism Killarney Garda Station will be opening its doors to the community and would encourage members of ethnic minorities to come and meet their local Gardaí. The aim of the day is to strengthen relations within the community and build trust with minority groups.
The day will consist of tours of the station and its facilities. There will be a variety of Garda vehicles on display as well as the opportunity to meet the Gardaí in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There will also be a demonstration by the Scenes of Crime Unit, The Public Order Unit and The Traffic Corps.
The day will also give members of the pubic the opportunity to meet the Community Policing unit which includes Garda Diane Collins, Garda Brendan O'Donovan and Garda Stephen Hourigan.
The community’s problems are our problems and their needs are our priorities. By working together we can find shared solutions to those shared problems and ensure a safer community for everyone. It is essential that the community remains at the heart of everything we do, as they are our greatest ally in our work in preventing and detecting crime and protecting the safety of the people we serve.
The event will be hosted by Inspector Pattwell and it is a great opportunity for the community to come and visit their local station. Enquiries can be made to Killarney Garda station on 064 – 6631222.
