Assistant Garda Commissioner, John Twomey said: "We would like to express our appreciation to the Dublin business community and in particular the DCBA for donation today. Segways add another arm to our portfolio in terms of dynamic and effective urban policing by maximising the areas we can monitor that are not typically accessible for other vehicles. Dublin has an impeccable safety record by European standards and we can assure members of the public that these Segways will be used to uphold and maintain this benchmark in the city centre districts of Dublin 1 and 2.”
