Welcome to the 2015 Annual edition of our Community Times. This eNewsletter has been created to keep you up to date with important developments, news, and events, happening in the areas of: Community Policing; Crime Prevention; Joint Policing Committees; Diversity; and Crime Call.

We acknowledge all of the hard work by those in communities across Ireland who have displayed motivation and commitment to initiatives that have benefitted everyone in our aim to deliver a Community Policing service. Without their personal drive for making things happen and achieving results, a host of successful initiatives that support and protect the community would not be achieved.

This Annual has been categorised by Garda regions, showcasing a wide range of Community Policing news and events from around the country.
