Tipperary Gardaí – Community Initiatives
Our picture (on left) shows Garda John Hognett and Garda Annette Connolly, Thurles, visiting Littleton Primary School recently, with their dog ‘Harley’, latter representing the South Eastern Regional Dog Unit.
To the joy of the children present, ‘Harley’, under the strict and safe supervision of Garda John, gave a demonstration of how to keep riotous people under control at close quarters and how his dog can sniff out drugs and explosives.
Garda Annette spoke to the assembled children on the various daily necessary operations of An Garda Siochana in Tipperary and the need by children, in particular, to identify with Gardaí as their protector, advisor and friend, particularly in times of danger.
The police presence on the day was extremely well received by both the school’s students and their teachers and could be an initiative to be undertaken by other Primary Schools throughout the county.
