Drugs Offences On The Rise In Clare

Today on Morning Focus, we heard from Chief Superintendent Seán Colleran as figures from the Clare Garda Division covering all of 2019 have now been released and show that overall, crime detections in this county are on a downward trend.

Chief Superintendent Seán Colleran spoke with Clare FM’s James Mulhall following yesterday’s Joint Policing Committee meeting to analyse how this county is performing.
