Came accross this nugget of information last week after speaking with someone involed in the ordering of these cars. One of the biggest cut backs on the Gardai is on new Squad cars and I'm told that a number of Garda Stations in Dublin are using Hire cars now when needed and in some cases their own personal transport

With Gardai Squad cars been made redundant at 120,000 miles many Gardai stations have not replaced old squad cars and stations accross Ireland have seen the number of squad cars down by one third.

Things are getting bad. I've heard that the Garda Surf Unit may be facing cuts.

On the crime ridden waves of Ireland.

Im sure agent Johnny Utah will help [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsbuQ-jg014]YouTube - "Point Break (1991)" Theatrical Trailer #1[/ame]

Wasn't there a report some years ago that the guards in Dublin were using the dearest filling station at the time , on the quays , to get their fuel supplies ?
