The Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Joint Policing Committee was established in 2009. The DLR JPC is a strategic partnership between An Garda Siochana and Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council with the aim of creating a safe and secure county.
DLR Joint Policing Committee meets three times a year.
The JPC’s function is to serve as a forum for consultations, discussions and recommendations on matters affecting the policing of a local authority area, and in particular to:
- Keep under review, a) the levels and patterns of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour (including the patterns and levels of misuse of alcohol and drugs) and b) the underlying factors that contribute to these issues.
- Advise the local authority and the Garda Síochána on how they might best perform their functions and do everything feasibly possible to improve the safety and quality of life, to prevent crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour.
- Arrange and host public meetings concerning matters affecting the policing of the local authorities administrative area.
- Establish in consultation with the local Garda Superintendent and specific neighbourhoods, local policing fora to discuss and make recommendations to the JPC.
- Co-ordinate the activities of the local policing forums.
