As part of the continuing commitment of Chief Superintendent Catherine Kehoe, of the Thurles Divisional Headquarters, to crack down on rural crime, Garda Chris Verling will now join his colleague Garda Mark Conway in Littleton this week.
Garda Verling will take up his post for an initial period; at least to the end of January 2016.
Garda Verling has spent the last 8 years stationed here in Thurles, with the most recent 4 years attached to the Community Policing Unit.
Mr Verling has been widely involved in a variety of community groups, projects and charity fund raising events here in Thurles; a role that we hope he will still continue in both Littleton and the Thurles area.
News of his new appointment has been warmly welcomed by the community of Littleton.
