The report outlines achievements in relation to our core commitments – the prevention and detection of crime, the protection of national security, and in particular, our daily work in communities around Ireland.

The community is our greatest ally and our long-standing relationships in communities continue to lead to meaningful partnerships, in addition to a more visible Garda presence and a reduction of crime and the fear of crime.

An Garda Síochána has developed close ties with the communities we serve over many years, which deliver policing results. Our proactive work yields tangible results, on a daily basis, and leads to improved trust between Gardaí and the people who live and work in the community.

During 2010, we continued our fight against the scourge of drugs in our society, which represents a challenge to communities and indeed to An Garda Síochána. Our sustained and focused efforts to tackle this problem resulted in significant seizures and arrests by local and national units during 2010. We will maintain these efforts in 2011 and beyond.

We will preserve our focus on the threats posed by dissident activity. We are committed to this policing and security work and we will work with our partners to thwart the efforts of those involved.

Garda work in communities all over Ireland bears significant results, as we fight against serious criminal activity, safeguard our nation’s security, reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads and build ever more peaceful communities through addressing the causes of antisocial behaviour.

Gardaí are ready and willing to meet the diverse challenges of policing in Ireland in 2011. Working with communities and our partner agencies, we will prevent and detect crime, reduce the fear of crime and serve the needs of all the people.
