Gardai say they’ve now foiled at least 30 attempts to kill, where the threat to life was imminent.

So far this year 60 new detective sergeants are working in Special Crime Operations, which includes areas like Cybercrime, Child Exploitation and Organised Crime.

Garda management say the reopening of Templemore training college has had a tangible impact on their capacity to fight crime.


Assistant commissioner John O’Driscoll says it’s a lot more serious than warning people their lives are in danger.
